Persian marquetry (Khatam) is one of an ancient Persian technique of inlaying. It is a version of marquetry wherein the surface of wooden or metallic articles is decorated with delicate pieces of wood, bone and metal precisely-cut in a variety of shapes and designs intricate geometric patterns.
This craft consists in the production of incrustation patterns (generally star-shaped), with thin sticks of wood, brass or bones, Ivory, gold or silver.
These sticks are assembled and glued in a strict order to create a geometrical pattern such as a six-branch star included in a hexagon.
Designing of Marquetry is highly elaborate. In each cubic centimeter of inlaid work, up to approximately 250 pieces of metal, bone, ivory and different kinds of wood are laid side by side, glued together in stages, smoothed, oiled and polished.
