This awe-inspiring wall piece resembling a lace fabric is hand-carved from boxwood. It took Julien over 3,500 hours to craft this piece using manual tools. Some elements of the sculptural wall piece have been gilded in both gold leaf and white gold leaf using traditional gilding methods. The trompe l’oeil sculpture depicts a scene of St George fighting the dragon, surrounded by delicate, symmetrical floral decor.
