"Love love love this Llama"

After visiting Peru, was saddened that we didnt bring home more art for home, for we fell in love with the people, food and history. Novica and this amazing artist have provided us with a lovely treasure for our home. We bought 4 pieces, and this llama is a joy to see each day. High craftmanship, skill, and attention to detail are qualities of each piece. Highly recommend this artist's work. I would be happy to have any of this artists pieces in my home.

"Wonderful addition to our collections"

This is a beautiful and very nicely crafted sculpture for home display. It is quite obvious this artisan has highly refined skills through years of experience, and takes great pride in sharing his heritage and handiwork. I enjoy looking at it every day in my study, alongside a companion piece.

Amazing what this man can do

I have bought as an anniversary gift two beautiful vases from this greatly gifted artist and they were a great success. My husband loves precolombine ceramics and he was delighted to see the quality and beauty of the pieces. For sure I will buy pieces again from this artisan, so happy I bought them!

I received ""Childbirth,"" and the artistry was truly stunning! The detail is exquisite on such a small sculpture. I always prefer sculptures which reveal a lot to touch, and this is one of those. It is rich with emotion.
