This piece was designed not only to compliment the custom made XXL Book for Al Ula by Assoulin; but to also highlight the beauty of Al Ula itself. It is designed to allow viewers to visually feel immersed within the photos of the pages in the book. The sides of the bookstand are intricately handcrafted art works using marquetry with Italian veneers that carry a magical illustration of the landscapes in Al Ula.
The vibrant and coarse colors are an impression of the rock mountains that cover these landscapes. The artwork reflects the distinctive textures that flow along all the natural surfaces throughout the city. It is a piece that naturally becomes part of the scape because of its native and cultural elements.
