"What a Beautiful Piece of Work!"

When I first saw Agra Owls by Gulam Rasool on Novica, I was fascinated with his artistic work but when I opened the package I was stunned with Mr. Rasool's unique and intense work of art. I love owls but the Agra Owls bring you to a higher level of appreciation . Not only is this an outstanding piece, but the natural soapstone heats the oil quickly and allows the oil to provide an outstanding fragrance. The Agra Owls makes a perfect gift to others or to yourself. Thank you Mr. Rasool for your awesome talent!

"Fabulous owls to delight our home :)"

This beautifully decorated package made me smile as I noted the heft of the carving inside, and I couldn?t wait to unwrap my new treasure. The substantial striated stone and intricate character carving makes this sculpture a unique piece of art. The artisan is truly gifted and shares such a fine skill via the likable faces of wise owls. I am about to order several more for gifts.

"Delicately beautiful"

I bought this item as a birthday gift for one of my Sisters. She absolutely loved it. I was not able to see it in person right away since we live in different States, but when I did see it, I wished I had ordered one for myself! The design is intricate, and very well done.
