Lovely Worry Doll Wreath
I love this worry doll double heart wreath. Its a little bit smaller than I thought but its beautiful and well made just the same.
Beautiful piece of art
Love the artwork Good Akan Mother. It arrived quickly to the United States and looks just like the picture online. I also like that it is signed by the artist. I will definitely be investing in a glass frame to protect this beautiful work!
Beautiful praying Mary
I received this beautiful piece of work and put it on the wall right away. The colors are beautifully vibrant and the face is very delicately painted. Thank you.
