Edward James Olmos has played so many memorable roles: Jaime Escalante in Stand and Deliver, Montoya Santana in American Me, Eddie Holt in Wolfen, Selena's father Abraham Quintanilla, and my personal favorite Gaff in Blade Runner. But he's probably best known for his fantastic portrayal of Commander Bill Adama in Battlestar Galactica - this deskoration is a representation of him in that role.
The wood is 4" square and 1/4" thick cherry, cut by hand on a scroll saw. It's finished with 3 coats of a water-based polyurethane for water resistance, and backed with 1/8" thick cork painted to highlight the design - these deskorations can double as coasters! Since cherry wood grain varies a lot from board to board, every deskoration is unique.
Be sure to order a deskoration stand to display your new purchase on your desk or mantel - you can find the stands here: https://centuryartisans.com/products/deskoration-stands
*I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Mr Olmos at a show in October 2019 - I told him I wasn't very good at selfies, so he took my phone and said, "I'm great at them!" Yes Mr Olmos, yes you are!
