This wood sculpture, Guardian of the Home, is simply awesome. It is a beautiful piece I bought as a gift for my girl who loves dragons. She was blown away by how beautiful it is and also how large it is. Excellent craftsmanship!

I love the color of this wood. The red hue is pretty. It looks great as part of a wall collage with other carvings. Gives my bedroom a tropical feel. Great craftsmanship!

Today, Seji is a strong female figure who heads a successful carving workshop. But in the days after her husband died, this future was far from guaranteed.
