"Captures mob daughters spirit"

I gave this sculpture to my daughter for Christmas because it captures how I see her. She has placed it with a special wood carving done by her Dad. She loves it and the special meaning it brings.

"Perfect Mother s Day Gift"

This exquisite statue, capturing the loving playfulness of a devoted mother, was a perfect Mother s Day gift for my daughter. The workmanship is proudly displayed on her living room shelving, and continues to receive many compliments. I was most pleased with this work of art.

"Gorgeous Wedding Gift"

Although the wood is beautiful and the carving stunning, I can feel the movement of the dance - the carving seems alive and memorializes my bride & grooms first dance. Lovely. Thak You
