I really like this vase from Africa. It is painted nice and I like how he carved the wood. I put on my shelf with all my other vases both ceramic and wood. Beautiful detailing.

Everything about this small vase looks and feels nice. Its a true work of art. And what an amazingly superb packaging job to protect it in transit. This vase rounds out my floral project perfectly.
