Damascene wooden mosaic, art of creativity.

Damascus, SANA- The Damascene wooden mosaic is one of the oldest, most distinguished traditional handicrafts in Damascus, giving its houses a unique beauty and earning considerable popularity among Syrians and tourists alike.

The roots of this handicraft extend back to the sixteenth century and it passed down through generations.

This handicraft uses various types of colored wood to make the veneer, such as rosewood, Eucalyptus, walnut, almond and lemon wood. The main body and structure of the mosaic pieces is made from beech or walnut wood.

Mosaics aren't limited to small trinkets and gift items; there are mosaic chairs, cabinets, bookshelves, and entire furniture sets.
