I machined this relief out of African mahogany using a large CMS CNC machine. It features two monstera leaves, a popular motif commonly seen throughout Polynesian art and across many different mediums including textiles, paintings, and woodcarvings. I created this piece to test the capabilities of the Matercam design interface as a complement or replacement for hand carving.
