"ROOOOAR!"

THIS PIECE OF WOOD HAS A HEFT AND WEIGHT TO IT, THE CARVING IS SPECTACULAR! IT IS A POWERFUL LION! I HAVE PUT HIM NEAR AN ALBRIJE GIRAFFE WHO IS TRYING TO EAT MY MOTHERS HYDRANGEAS IN A DEER VASE. TRUST ME, ITS SUCH A GREAT SETTING. THIS IS MASCULINE ENOUGH TO GIVE TO A GUY. i AM VERY PLEASED WITH MY LEO. ;)

"Impressive Sculpture"

This Maroon Lion sculpture is even more impressive in reality than the photo; I was delighted with my purchase! The colours are really vibrant with intricate carvings, and it has a substantial and weighty feel to the piece. I highly recommend this artist.

"SO DISAPPOINTED!!!"

I bought this for a 50th wedding anniversary and vow renewal gift for a very special couple. I wanted something unique and meaningful. I was very excited to find these carvings online. When I opened the package I was shocked...and not in a good way. The painting is sloppy and the carving is nondescript. It looks NOTHING like the picture. You cant even tell that it is a heart they are holding. There is NO WAY I can give this to them as a gift. I would be mortified. It looks so cheap. I am SO DISAPPOINTED! I wish I could have given it zero stars. I have no idea how I am going to come up with another gift in such a short amount of time now.
