"Very Basic but Charming Nativity"

Figures within the Palm House are roughly carved and lack detail on the faces, clothing. Artist needs to take a bit more time and do a bit more finishing effort.

"Absolutely LOVE this sculpture."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Such beautiful workmanship and heart has gone into making this beautiful sculpture. I started a new job that I new would be a bit of a challenge at first due to my lack of management experience in the past. This beautiful sculpture sits on my desk and I receive a calming sensation every time I look at it. Also, it is more beautiful in person. RW
