Wood is not a traditional material to make a rug, but artist Daniella Mooney puts a strange touch on her creation by creating a rug that looks like a hardwood floor that has been peeled up.

The installation sports a completely wooden rug that features a dining room chair that holds the piece up to give it a look as though it is holding up the floor. 'Parquetry' plays with different angles to provide viewers a completely obscure experience that conjures many questions: is it really a wooden carpet? Just how did the artist create such a complex creation?

Mooney is renowned for her obscure installations that bend the borders of perception and move in an almost surrealist direction that is sometimes hard to describe using mere words. Stats for Carved Carpet Installations Trending: Older & Mild
