"Beautiful and Elegant"
The warm wood tones and superior craftsmanship make this item really out of the ordinary. I loved the design immediately because it reminded me of the Art Deco style of art work. When I received the "Moon Goddess 1" statue I was so glad I had ordered it. the photos do not do it justice.
