The inlay technique refers to the veneering or incrustation of thin sheets of precious wood, ivory or bone, nacre or shells covering a wooden body.

It appears very early in history, in Mesopotamia, around 2600 before J.-C, as attested by numerous found objects.

The Odyssey of Homer and Pliny the Elder name objects made according to this technique. It was also known in Pharaonic Egypt, and washe petted in the Coptic era and then in the Islamic period. . In particular, a set of boards date from the beginning of the Islamic period. . They present a geometric decoration: a set of checkers and rhombuses associated with arcades and stylized columns. This beautiful-looking decoration still bears the imprint of late Antiquity. In the Fatimid period (X-XII centuries), motives and style evolve.

It wasin the 12th century, under the Seljuk Atabegs and the Ayubites, the work of embedded wood develops considerably, mainly for the furniture of religious buildings .. The marquetry work, which uses ivory and mother-of-pearl, associated with wood finely sculpted, it enhances the strictly geometrical decoration of the complex motifs centered around eight or ten pointed stars.

Isassociation of complex geometric networks, built around star-shaped polygons and a rich work of inlays, you will find its fullness in the Mamluk period, in the decoration of great pious foundations,. During the fourteenth century, an important use of large inlays of ivory elements stands out.

In a more miniaturist style, furniture elements are made, such as the kursi and the Koran box in ivory, bone and precious woods.

At the same time, the Christians of Egypt also used this technique to decorate their churches.

The Ottoman Turks probably took from the Mamluks the art of marquetry, since then reserved for the furniture elements.

The wood marquetry was transmitted from the East to Italy, where it will be called intarsia. The first mentions appear in documents found in Siena in the thirteenth century, where the use of ivory is privileged to obtain a strong bichrome contrast with dark wood. From Italy, the marquetry will then spread to all of Europe.
