Featured Reviews on African Wood Sculpture
Reminder to Pray
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.
Elegant and touching
The giraffes are sweet while looking dignified. The stain is a rich brown, the carving is well done, and its solid without being heavy. A romantic gift for some one who likes giraffes.
Perfect anniversary gift
Bought this for my husband for our anniversary. it has pride of place in his study. Absolutely beautiful.
