"The Perfect Gift !!"

Im one of those people who takes special pride in the ability to find The Perfect Gift, and this is one of them -- in this case for my brother, whose taste is very particular and unlike my own. I wasnt sure but I took a chance and Bingo -- this totally hit the very narrow intersection of his taste and mine! He called me from Spain, raving about it, the design, the workmanship, the beauty of it -- thank you for helping me wish my beloved brother a happy birthday!

"Flying Dragon"

I had ordered this as a gift for my mother to add to her collection, and it would be a unique piece . I liked the photos online and was certain she would enjoy it when it arrived. WOW! It looked even better in person. The details were amazing! It is now the center of her collection. Absolutely beautiful. To the maker of this piece: Thank you for doing such great work and pride in your work Absolutely is reflected in this!

This looks lovely in our home. Absolutely beautiful attention to detail so many little things you notice. We use this with battery powered tea lights sometimes for extra ambiance and it cast beautiful shadows
