"Gift"

This is my second purchase from this artist. On receiving this Buddha I did find a difference with the way the teeth were displayed in the picture as well as the chest but other then this it is well done. I will purchase from him again.

"A wine loving cat is better than a carafe!"

This wonderful cat holds tightly to the wine bottle. The feline is a beautiful and expressive work of art while keeping good wine safe from any mishap.

Best Uses

  • My son and daughter in law have after work drinks on the patio
  • I bought this as art and stability for the wine bottle
