"Beautiful"

Exquisite and charming. Ive set them on a window ledge and the silhouette when the sun shines through is stunning. Smaller than I expected, but find that the small size adds to the charm. Still, would love a larger set to put on the fireplace mantle.

"Reminder to Pray"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sculpture is unusual, beautiful and a calm reminder to pray about things which are out of our control. I recently sent one as a gift to my sister who has a terminal diagnosis. She placed in a prominent place in her home to remind her that God is always with her.
