"Beautiful but the colors are dull"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was really impressed with the craftmanship but I feel that the colors of paint are a little dull and there isnt very much contrast, so the details of the wood carving dont really show or pop as much as Id like. It is a beautiful piece of art and very unique. It just pains me that the bottom portion of Michaels wings are basically invisible if you arent looking at it pretty closely. Their woodwork is amazing and unmatched.

"Sweet moment"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This peaceful rendition of the tender love of mother and Son will fill your heart with peace and wonder. I like how the baby connects with His sweet mother through a gentle stroke of her face. The way her eyes are fixated on His eyes makes me think she can see beyond time what will become of her little baby. Shes not smiling but shes not crying either. Shes just savoring the moment. The carving is detailed and the colors are just perfect. You wont find something so unique in a regular store.
