cherished gift for a friend
I have a pair these that I love. At first I thought they would be too large, but have realized they are just right to accent many outfits. I loved them so much I ordered a pair for a friend and she also loves them.
Amazing work of art
I purchased this glorious rhino as a birthday present for my husband as a reminder of our safari in Namibia where we saw 12 rhinos. It is truly beautiful; the quality of the carving is substantial and smooth, and the bead work is just an added treat. He loves it! I will look for other works by Abdul for future gifts.

"I was good at learning through watching my brother when he was carving, and then I would try my hand and I would ask for assistance when needed."
