"Beloved Fruit from a Foreign Land."

This beautiful piece of art looks real despite the fact that it's made out of highly polished wood. A whimsical puzzle Box which I love dearly was a gift to myself. I use it to store good ease and trinkets which I bought from foreign lands from Novica. ?

The quality and workmanship on the puzzle box I ordered was outstanding.


I love the detail on Eka's Buddha Laughs statue. He brings such joy to the house with his happy and content expression! I can tell that she put a great deal of thought and heart into this. As I rub his belly I wish the best for Eka and her children. Namaste!
