Love this sculpture
Elephant Joy is beautiful with a great deal of personality! I especially love his baby elephant eyes and upraised trunk!
This came to us all the way from Thailand in perfect shape and absolutely gorgeous. I have wanted one for years, and this is the perfect size. I can easily put a candle or incense on the landing. It is truly a work of art and unique, guests always comment favorably.
This elephant is a delight. I love the design and it feels very smooth to the touch. It also is bigger than I thought it would be. Very pleased with this purchase!
"Many people might think that men can be better than women at woodcarving, but not in my area."
