I received the beautiful brass dragons,
bronze dragon incense burner and Kuan Yin.
They are absolutely beautiful. I paid almost
double for a smaller brass dragon from a
different company that looks almost childish
next to yours.
It is very obvious the quality of this artwork
is far superior and the energy in my house feels
like it has lifted. The small dragon you included
as a gift is much nicer than I expected,
thank you very much! I will enjoy these for many years, many thanks.
I look forward to ordering my Christmas presents from you.
