"What a beautiful treasure you have carved!"

This is the second treasure I have purchased from Mr. Rasool and each piece is beautiful. Someday I would like to see how the carvings are done, such intricate pieces of art. Thank you Mr. Rasool.

"small but mighty"

This is the smallest of my Buddha sculptures. It is calming to hold or look at. The white alabaster gets attention and is beautiful. I am now a fan of Gulam Rasool.
