This prickly character is so clever. I bought one for a gift...then had to have one for myself. Thank you to the fun artist!
I absolutely love this colorful rabbit. It is beautifully carved by the artist. I have it prominently displayed in our family room where it is admired. I would highly recommend this carving to others.
This delicate piece arrived lovingly packed and in perfect condition. The art is extraordinary. I love it. Thank you
