I just wanted to personal Thank You for my beautiful masks. Your passion and love in your work shows through the detail of your artistry.



I am very pleased with my purchase of the Good Fortune sculptures. The workmanship is amazing. I have them prominently displayed in my home for all to see!

My ""Dog of the Spirit World"" carving is a beautifully crafted piece, it's one of my favorite Novica purchases. I was worried about the long ears and tail surviving the journey from Africa to Texas but it was so carefully packed I think it could have survived a trip to the moon!
