Really love this little guy. This is the second item I have bought from this very talented artist. He really pays attention to detail and is brilliant no matter what he imagines. I would have to say whatever you order you will be quite pleased.

This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.

Gusti now has artisan assistants who help with the hand-painting of his designs. Each of these assistants works from home.

In addition to supporting his three children, Gusti also cares for a foster child.
