These woods are assembled differently depending on whether one wishes to make a relief or round (statues sculpture). The timber assembly is formed to prevent cracking and shrinkage (or expansion timber, depending on ambient humidity). Wood finishes with the use of gold are specific and varied.
The gold leaf provides a real enhancement of the wood so that the subject carved is defined.
