Wood Etched Family Portrait Idea

I love how far the advancement of technology has come these days, especially with artisans able to do so much more experimental art work; such as this laser etched wood engraved family portrait. You simply send the artist a family photo that you want to use, and then the artist uses a laser wood engraver to etch the portrait onto a pice of wood for you. This is a great keepsake item, or even a gift for a loved one!
