""Thoughtful Man" is exquisite! "

I was expecting excellence (because of the descriptive pictures) and that's what I got! I Love "Thoughtful Man! It's very well done and eye catching. I was quite surprised that mine came two-toned, but (in my eye) that's what makes it 'exquisite' for me. The height and overall size is perfect. The ebony and lighter side are blended and done to perfection. I've also ordered a set of 5 elephants, and now, I'm Really excited about getting them! Actually, they should be waiting when I get home tonight! :) Novica is my new shopping place for sculptures!
