These marquetry inlay panels are done by Zoltán Vargay from Budapest, Hungary.
Zoltán Vargay
Zoltán Vargay writes on his blog:

“Since early childhood, I have been attracted to art, mainly music and fine art.
I have had a particular interest in objects made of wood, for example furniture and marquetry.
I was about eighteen years old when I was first drawn to the originality and individuality of marquetry inlay panel pictures.
The desire to create such  beautiful pictures became so overwhelming that I began to read and teach myself how to create a marquetry picture.
After a few months researching and a good deal of effort, I managed to create my very first pictures.
Sadly due to career commitments, I could devote no time on my passion.

I qualified as technical engineer and worked on development and services of National and International Telecommunication for forty years.
It was my retirement in 2006 that made it possible for me to return to this beautiful art and started to work on various subjects such as castles, landscape and historical and biblical subjects.”

    Your use of contrast and color is what so many works of this kind are lacking. Really great stuff. The stair case is perfectly applied in the art of marquetry. I hope that you inspire others to apply the art properly, as you do.
