"Art that is both useful and beautiful!"

I bought this for my husband, and he enjoys it each day. Now I wait to purchase more for myself and others, as it is so wonderfully crafted.

"beautiful and functional"

I have trouble throwing away magazines that I have not yet read, and they tend to stack up in untidy piles. Now I have a beautiful solution in this lovely magazine rack that sits in my living room as an eye-catching accessory. It is sturdy but light weight and holds many magazines

"A beautiful piece of artwork!"

I was looking for a unique piece to have beside my leather chair where I read and do needlepoint. Something nice that I could put my things in so the end table wouldnt be so cluttered. It is in the main living area of my home and visible to company. This is the perfect thing and Im proud to show it off! It is a generous size but not awkwardly large. The colors are vibrant without being too much. The carvings are amazing and sharp. You can tell that it is a good quality piece that was made by a true craftsman. I am so very pleased with it! Highly recommended!
