"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

"Reminder to Pray"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sculpture is unusual, beautiful and a calm reminder to pray about things which are out of our control. I recently sent one as a gift to my sister who has a terminal diagnosis. She placed in a prominent place in her home to remind her that God is always with her.
