Process of making a bone inlay furniture:
An inlay is a technique of inserting pieces of contrasting material into depressions made on a base object. The production of bone inlay furniture is a three-step process and requires up to a month to create. First, the fragments of camel bones are shaped delicately. Then these intricate shapes are affixed onto the timber frame in a detailed pattern. After this, the resin is filled around the bone shapes to craft the background. The bone pieces are offset by the striking color of the resin to create an exotic looking oriental piece of furniture.
