"Touched My Heart"

Seji Taram's talent and her story touched my heart. Her husband would be proud of how she is carrying on his legacy, and she is a wonderful artist in her own right. My Winged Dragon is so beautifully carved in such exquisite detail. I love it. And I love that she signed it, and her signature will remind me that we can survive loss and move forward in life. Thank you, Seji Taram, you are amazing!

"Stunning in person!"

The initial one that I was sent was not packed properly and damaged in shipping. I hope they can glue it up and sell it to someone at a discount because its such a shame that such a beautiful piece of work got damaged because of shipping! Usually Novica is really good about packing, but I think the weird shape of this and trying to find the right box led to not enough padding with the first one I was sent. The second one had plenty of padding and the box was much larger, so it looks like they learned from that mistake!I need to figure out HOW to hang it but it is absolutely stunning and I know exactly WHERE I will be hanging it!

"Just beautiful!"

I purchased this piece to replace a previous ceramic purchase from Novica that decided to fall off the wall : (This piece is even better than I expected if that is even possible. I appreciate the symbolism of the lotus flower, rebirth & resurrection, combined with the sun. Clearly, Seji is very gifted. Im grateful she connected with Novica as a platform to share her work with the world. More power to Seji to provide for her children!
