"Reminder of a past & successful career in nursing!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I gave this to my sister who just retired from nursing after 46 years. It was a unique & perfect gift. She was known for the nurse who wore red shoes, so I was able to paint the shoes with red fingernail polish to add one more personal touch! She displayed it on a table at her retirement party....I may be getting questions about where I purchased it; I will be happy to pass along the information about this artisan and your company site. Thank you for helping me find this unique gift.

When my daughter graduated nursing school we gave her this. It is fun and quirky but a good reminder of the work she does everyday.

Im always blown away by the talent and detail in Armandos sculpture! This stag is no exception. I love the creativity and all the detail of each part. I have several of his sculptures now and each of them is wonderful. My stag looks perfect next to my antler lamp.
