"A Real Treasure"

Really love this little guy. This is the second item I have bought from this very talented artist. He really pays attention to detail and is brilliant no matter what he imagines. I would have to say whatever you order you will be quite pleased.

I just received my Storyteller Hippo. It is as delightful in person as it is in the photos online. I am impressed with the beautiful artwork that makes this storyteller doll unique. I would love to order at least one more so that the hippo has company. Thanks for sharing your talent!

The ""Lotus Buddha"" came today, and I am beyond pleased! This piece has definitely exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for creating such beautiful work!
