"Exquisite Retablo"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am impressed with the quality of this piece - the workmanship far exceeds my expectations. I have recommended this artist to a friend who collects nativity sets. The service from Novica was fast; the retablo was packaged well. I would be interested in seeing new pieces by Maria as they become available.

"Beautiful reminder of my vacation in El Salvador"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The artist, clearly influenced by the work of Fernando Llort, has created a beautiful painting on a wooden plate which was the perfect addition to add some color to my office. She clearly takes pride in her work and in making pieces which portray her life in El Salvador. Its wonderful that she can make a living by creating such beautiful pieces of art.
