Fun Festival Accessory
Wearing this to an outdoor festival in previous years made me feel part of the celebration. It is lightweight enough to be comfortable and sturdy enough to last many years as a decorative surprise on your wall.
I ordered an angel carved by Jose Canil Ramos previous time ordering this and I knew what a great job he does! This did not disappoint. Fantastic
So pleased with this purchase. Packaging, delivery and service were exemplary, but most of all the talent of the artist is something I am proud to support. It will be treasured by my mixed race son as a reminder of his Igbo heritage. Thank you Novica.
