This is also a chip carving plaque. (Even if it isn’t much looks like chip carving) I am in the process of creating a carved “Photo Album” including old churches. This is the first page of that album.
Basswood, that I have sealed first, than used ebony stain to darken the surface but making sure that the grain of the wood still shines through. The white lines are carved after. The right side of the building the symbol of the moon and some stars are silver plated and the left side the sun symbol are gold.
Below there is the sketch of the second page of the album, still in work,
