Pietra Dura

Pietra dura or Pietre Dure, called Parchin Kari or Parchinkari in the Indian Subcontinent, is a term for the inlay technique of using cut and fitted, highly polished colored gemstones to create images. It is an amazing decorative art. The stonework, after the work is assembled loosely, is glued stone-by-stone to a substrate after having previously been "sliced and cut in different shape sections and then assembled together so precisely that the contact between each section is practically invisible".
