These magnificent creations of art are made by Paul Krenz from Niederkassel – Rheidt, Germany.
He was born and raised in USSR. Or, as he himself said:
“ It was granted to me by the will of the almighty to come in this world on the 13th of March in the year 1948. ”
In 1990 he moved his physical shell from former USSR to Germany.
His “A Bouquet with a Crown of Thorns” are acknowledged by the Guinness book of Records as the largest intarsia picture of the world including more than 6500 pieces of veneer.
Quote from his website:
“ When the first and greatest artist in the history of the universe finished his masterpiece, he crowned it with the realization of his own: He created Man as the incarnation of his creativity – it was his final unexcelled masterpiece, in which he laid the seed of his power of creation.
Since then it’s up to us to improve and design the divine work of art which we live on and create in harmony with the creator.
All the instruments for doing so have been given to us by our wise master since the very beginning – especially the recognition of our ability to create, to love and the freedom of decision. ”
