"great eye for simplicity "

this artist sees the importance of simple yet not missing the detail of structure. this is a gift to a collector of elephant sculptures and my only regret is; when sent to me ; the packer didn't enclose the gift card , which to me is important as a collectors piece. i called novica and said as much but , i still don't know if i'll get the card so i can include it with the gift when the time comes for giving. But, i intend to purchase more from this artist in the future she is truly gifted!!
