Story Behind the Art: This product is finely made by ASHA Handicrafts, in Mumbai, India. ASHA, established in 1975 as a non-profit organization to promote Fair Trade practices, represents more than 5,000 workers in 19 different cities and villages in India. They help small-scale handicraft cooperatives that are disadvantaged because they lack financial and marketing knowledge. Asha in Sanskrit means 'Hope', and ASHA has brought hope into what was largely a 'hopeless' situation by providing a marketing outlet for the craft of talented artisans.

I love this item!! I bought four of them so far...they make a great inexpensive gift for anyone who wears glasses...even sunglasses! They are hand carved out of beautiful wood and are cute, kitchy and useful...what more could you ask for? So far everyone who has received one raved over them and wants to get some for their friends. I love that each one is unique in wood grain and slight variations in color...it almost makes you want to name them! If you want a gift for someone and don't know what to get them...this is a perfect choice!
It looked exactly like the picture. My only issue is that when it arrived the base had broken from the holder. I fixed it with a little glue and now it's good as new. My father loves his gift and that is what matters!
This is a clever idea and the carving is solid. It does work as intended. However, expect a more primitive version than the item pictured. The nostrils are very minimalistic and primitively carved, as is the mouth. The picture indicates a smooth carving of said nostrils and lips. This is a fairly expensive item for what it is. The blurb refers to a "finely carved wooden sculpture." That is not exactly what you will receive.
