"Exquisite Retablo"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am impressed with the quality of this piece - the workmanship far exceeds my expectations. I have recommended this artist to a friend who collects nativity sets. The service from Novica was fast; the retablo was packaged well. I would be interested in seeing new pieces by Maria as they become available.
