Customer comment on 'White Buddha Prayer (Small Contemplative/Meditation Indoor statuette)' by Laura Lian
Hi Sarah, opened sculpture today and have to say thank you, it`s a beautiful piece (White Buddha Prayer by Laura Lian) that seems to resonate calmness and serenity, yet the flow of the lines gives it a vibrancy of life, am very happy with my purchase. I bought it for a friend and wondered if the authentication is named could you use her name xxxxxxxx, thanks again.
