I wanted these so that I could light a candle or two and my cats would not be harmed by getting too close. I enjoy lighting these and enjoy the comforting glow they give off. These are so lovely.

"Stunning and Unique"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Absolutely stunning. Gulams mother elephant is an amazing artwork, gorgeous to look at, display, hold. When I first unwrapped it, I was in awe of its beauty. It gives me great pleasure to see it on my mantle every day and everybody that sees it loves it. I have loved each piece I have purchased from Gulam. I highly recommended Gulam as an amazing, unique artist and craftsman

This is an amazing piece with a tiny owl, inside another owl and that owl is inside yet another, and you can see all three. I cherish mine.
