"What a Beautiful Piece of Work!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

"Stunning and Unique"

Absolutely stunning. Gulams mother elephant is an amazing artwork, gorgeous to look at, display, hold. When I first unwrapped it, I was in awe of its beauty. It gives me great pleasure to see it on my mantle every day and everybody that sees it loves it. I have loved each piece I have purchased from Gulam. I highly recommended Gulam as an amazing, unique artist and craftsman
