New Arrivals : Sculpture
This small figure certainly makes you feel something. I love it, although at times it does make me feel disconcerted as though it is not just a piece of carved wood. The intentional use of the natural knots/burls to form significant figure definitely seem to imbue it with a kind of "spirit". If you have ever seen the Treebeard character from Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy then you have the look and vibe down pat.
I could not wait to receive this sculpture and when I first laid eyes upon it, it took my breath away. I have purchased many items from Novica but the two sculptures (soon to be a third) from Mr. Obeng's collection are my favorite by far. The sculptures are alive with energy and add a wonderful vibration to my home. Mr. Obeng is truly gifted and I look forward to adding more of his beautiful sculptures to my collection. I'm one happy customer.
These hummingbirds are stunning. Size appropriate and fabulous detail. These were well wrapped and arrived safely. Would definitely give these as a gift again.
