Also in Midas’s tomb were serving stands decorated with geometric designs like this circular rosette (compare with photo of three-legged table). To create the inlay, the boxwood frame was carved out with a chisel, and then pieces of juniper were tapped into place. Hundreds of such inlay pieces found scattered about the tomb were glued back into place by restorers. The serving stands are now on display in the Museum of Anatolian Civilization in Ankara, Turkey.
