beautiful piece of art
I found at least 3 places in my house to display this wonderful piece! It is small and can fit in a lot of small locations. There is a hook on the back and it is quite sturdy. I am very happy with this piece!
This item is well made by a very talented artist. The colors and finish captures the very uniqueness of nature at its finest. A find I'm so pleased to display.
