"Magnificent craftmanship"

Just love all metal detailing to surface face and hinged jaw whiskers that is like a loose fitting bracelet or beard on the sculpture. Love the characterization of cat -- colors and turquoise contrasts.

"It truly is. Heirloom piece, i mean."

This cross is literally the most beautiful I have ever seen. It is beautiful in the pic, but stunning in the hand. I opened this package (Very well packed) as I spoke to 3 neighbor friends, and when they saw it, we all went silent and just stared at it, then came the Ohh wows I recently discovered I was 23% Peruvian, and wanted something from the Area of the Andes to remind me, and I couldnt have chosen a better piece. Tod las gracias a Ana Maria. You can feel she puts her Heart into this work.
