This is a beautiful and very nicely crafted sculpture for home display. It is quite obvious this artisan has highly refined skills through years of experience, and takes great pride in sharing his heritage and handiwork. I enjoy looking at it every day in my study, alongside a companion piece.

"Love love love this Llama"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

After visiting Peru, was saddened that we didnt bring home more art for home, for we fell in love with the people, food and history. Novica and this amazing artist have provided us with a lovely treasure for our home. We bought 4 pieces, and this llama is a joy to see each day. High craftmanship, skill, and attention to detail are qualities of each piece. Highly recommend this artists work. I would be happy to have any of this artists pieces in my home.

"Not like the photograph"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I like this piece, however mine is not painted as in the photograph, and that is very disappointing. I wonder if something happened to my piece, because the picture is very misleading.
