"Beautiful personalized gift giving!"
This is my second piece that I have purchased and love it! His work makes gift giving more focused, personal and as such adds warmth and feeling everytime you look at it. My wife and I like couples sculptures and while searching the internet we found this site. I continue to watch this artists work, share it with friends and make it my first stop when looking for a thoughtful gift. Thanks to Novica for creating opportunity that builds self respect, confidence and better lives.
