I ordered an angel carved by Jose Canil Ramos previous time ordering this and I knew what a great job he does! This did not disappoint. Fantastic
Protecting my home
I ve been in love with Africa since I visited a few years back. I regretted not buying a mask then and have been looking for the perfect one ever since. I found this one and it now hangs over the entry door to my home making me feel safe and secure! It s beautiful and I m so happy!
So pleased with this purchase. Packaging, delivery and service were exemplary, but most of all the talent of the artist is something I am proud to support. It will be treasured by my mixed race son as a reminder of his Igbo heritage. Thank you Novica.
