"beloved by my family!"

This sculpture was a gift to my parents, and it is displayed as a focal point in their home, along with another of John Barrow's pieces depicting the holy family. Thank you for your most beautiful work!, I am so pleased to have been able to share it with my parents and extended family.

"Stunning craftsmanship and creativity"

This is such a beautiful creche. We give our children nativity sets when they marry and this is the set my son and daughter-in-love selected. I can not wait to see their faces when they open it. I also got the wall/window for a background.

"Exqusite and dynamic!"

I have a lot of folk art, including a number of other pieces from John Barrow, and I am mostly only interested in depictions of animals, plants, and geometric forms, not humans. However the colors of the womens dress, combined with the condor, make this one of only a handful of pieces I have in my collection depicting humans, and I am extremely happy with it! One thing I realized I especially love about this piece is the dynamism that comes from having the condor sticking out away from the pieces center of gravity.

"What a novel concept!"

This crèche was originally destined for my son s bedroom; but, when it arrived, it proved too beautiful for such a private setting. So, it was moved to the main living room for all to admire. The crafting of a Nativity scene in a block format is so unique. All our friends, upon viewing it, exclaim they have never seen such a novel concept and are amazed at your artistry. It went on display immediately upon arrival — even before December! Why hide a masterpiece!
