"A very unique gift"

I was looking for a unique gift to give to a family member when I saw this soapstone box. It was perfect. It was actually larger than I expected, and the carving was beautifully done.

"This will be a most welcome Christmas gift"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered this for next Christmas for an elephant loving friend, and from the ratings of this artist for others, have every confidence that it will become a treasured item in their home. I have never been disappointed with anything I ordered from a Novica seller, and now have many things I dont need, but love! This at least is a useful item, and it is so beautifully gift-wrapped that I didnt want to open it just to write a review, when I was convinced that was unnecessary!

He still works alongside his son and other artisans to whom he has taught this craft, and treasures the role he plays in continuing this important Indian artistic tradition.

Gulam Rasool has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $400 and the most recent for $1800.

Nearing his eighth decade, master stone sculptor Gulam Rasool continues to provide for his family, especially his grandchildren.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.
