"Stunning and Unique"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Absolutely stunning. Gulams mother elephant is an amazing artwork, gorgeous to look at, display, hold. When I first unwrapped it, I was in awe of its beauty. It gives me great pleasure to see it on my mantle every day and everybody that sees it loves it. I have loved each piece I have purchased from Gulam. I highly recommended Gulam as an amazing, unique artist and craftsman
