The picture doesn't do it justice -- this box is amazing. I bought it as a Mother's Day gift for my 88-year-old mother who is originally from India and she loves it! Even my brother, who never notices anything, commented on how nice it is.

"It grabbed me!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

A dear friend chose a theme animal for his new daughter. Elephants! I immediately thought of the beautiful elephant word puzzle box I had from Novica and went on line to buy another. But, glancing through the other options I found this cutie that looks like a baby elephant - bright colors but still delicate and sweet! Haven?t opened it - waiting for Maddie?s first birthday!

Just incredible! I will have to update my will to name which of my children will get this, as surely they will both want it. Also, heres a thought: sprinkle your surroundings with things of beauty to delight the eye and give joy to your heart. I will be placing this very painfully to maximise its effect on my spirit! Thank you so much, Gulam Rasool, for sharing your art and skill!

This soapstone oil warmer was definitely worth the wait! The craftsmanship that has gone into making this piece is impressive and the product is of a very fine quality. The artist has clearly got great experience in carving. I would highly recommend this artist to others who are interested in similar designs/products.
