this artist sees the importance of simple yet not missing the detail of structure. this is a gift to a collector of elephant sculptures and my only regret is; when sent to me ; the packer didn't enclose the gift card , which to me is important as a collectors piece. i called novica and said as much but , i still don't know if i'll get the card so i can include it with the gift when the time comes for giving. But, i intend to purchase more from this artist in the future she is truly gifted!!
I was expecting excellence (because of the descriptive pictures) and that's what I got! I Love "Thoughtful Man! It's very well done and eye catching. I was quite surprised that mine came two-toned, but (in my eye) that's what makes it 'exquisite' for me. The height and overall size is perfect. The ebony and lighter side are blended and done to perfection. I've also ordered a set of 5 elephants, and now, I'm Really excited about getting them! Actually, they should be waiting when I get home tonight! :) Novica is my new shopping place for sculptures!
I would most definitely recommend this wooden cat for anyone who loves cats. The colors were just exquisite.
