"Intarsia" is an ancient Italian woodworking and lapidary method for making 3-dimensional pictures with wood, petrified wood, and/or stone. Modern intarsia scenes often use pieces between .125 inches and 1.75 inches thick, fitted together like a jigsaw puzzle and attached to a backing board. The natural colors and grain patterns of different pieces are carefully chosen to enhance the design, though some artisans prefer to use stains or dyes instead.
