Story Behind the Art:
Born in London, John Barrow traveled to Peru in 1969. His original work contract was for eight weeks, but he ended up staying. John has always enjoyed woodwork, a craft he learned from his father. 'Living in Peru, I got to know a variety of beautiful wood types,' John explains. 'When I retired, I was finally able to dedicate myself completely to my passion, carving! I have designed my own machines and tools to help me work the wood in a different way.'

I gave this wooden "tree of life" to my mother-in-law for Christmas. She has freestanding "favorite artwork" shelves in her sun room and displays it proudly, which I consider a very good thing as she truly has a lot of pieces of arts and crafts to display. The colors in this piece are gorgeous; deep, rich and varied, and the wood carving itself is impressive. It's large enough to be well noticeable but small enough not to overtake other pieces displayed along with it. I hope I can find another gift in this line again as I feel sure the quality would be very good.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes.

My husband loved working with wood and loved inlaid wood items. He knew the difficulty in creating items that were inlaid. I was delighted when the TREE OF LIFE arrived. The striking bright woods inlaid together was more than I expected--the artist is truly gifted. This would make a terrific gift for anyone.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Close but even brighter colors in the wood piece
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is excellent
The quality of this small sculpture is outstanding. My parents have emerald green carpeting and stained glass work throughout their home. This was purchased as a gift and looks just beautiful on a table in their entry-way. Exactly what I hoped for........
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes!

This product is absolutely beautiful! Clearly it was created with precision and artistic talent that translates extremely well in the final product.
The colors complement each other. Overall workmanship is incredible. The tree of life is something I have long appreciated, whatever the form. This item is definitely with the cost, as its value is worth much more.
I would recommend this item to anyone. It is truly a work of art.
The tree truly is a piece of art. It's beautiful, to say the least. Just as the picture depicts the colors are bright and bold, and the feel of the wood is smooth with a sheen. If you're a lover of wood art, this one is sure not to disappoint. I definitely recommend - and may buy another for myself. In a word...quality.
THIS IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF ART! IN PERSON IT IS EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE. THE CREATOR OF THIS TRUELY HAS TALENT. I'M SO PLEASED HE IS SHARING HIS WORK WITH ME.
I WILL BE PROUD TO DISPLAY THIS IN MY HOME. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!
