"Stunning, though pinker than picture"

The pictures of this item make it look like a color intermediate between purple and pink, however in person, under natural light, I would describe it as being redder/pinker and I would probably describe the color scheme as just pink, maybe with hints of purple. The top panel also looks white in natural light. As purple is my favorite color Im a little bit disappointed in that, and yet despite that, it is really amazing work. Had I known what it would look like in natural light, its possible that Id have gone for Cajamarca Splendor by the same artists, which is a bold combination of secondary colors including purple. However, regardless, I am very happy that I have one of these cabinets, and this color scheme would have been one of my top two finalists for which one I wanted, regardless. I am very happy to have it; it is such a neat piece, and I am amazed that when you consider how much it would cost to ship this much glass from the Andes, they can offer it at this price.

"A beautfiul work of art to be handed down for generations!"

I cannot say enough good things about this beautiful and functional work of art. I bought this with a Mothers Day gift certificate from my daughter. I needed a jewelry box. I had bought one at a flea market and brought it home. It had a very negative vibe, so I threw the flea market box and all my jewelry out in the trash because of the negative vibe. When I opened this beautiful work of art from Peru, I was astounded by the beauty. Even though I paid $100 for it, I realized it was worth much more. God bless the artisans that create such beauty. Im so grateful we can help support their work. And a positive vibe too!
