Details

The chasquis were the messengers of the Inca Empire. Their role was very important, as they carried news and royal mandates across the vast lands of the Inca.

Perfect gift for a dear family member who is attending veterinary school,graduating soon. She loves horses so this card holder is perfect especially if she decides to work as a large animal veterinarian. The carving is so smooth and perfectly rendered.

"Truly impressed"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The most beautiful horse, with very lifelike details, and an added grace, couldnt imagine anything more impressing. Beautiful wood, an artwork of high standard. This is my second horse from Bali, I have bought one from another artist before, both sculptures are of exceptional quality. It always makes me happy to look at them.
