Story Behind the Art:
Diego Mendoza says, 'What I enjoy the most about my work is also my biggest challenge ? creating new designs. Wood is a noble element, totally transformable, that gives you a lot if you know how to work it, treat it and take care of it. I remember with much gratefulness a companion in the first workshop where I worked. He took a lot of time to teach me things I never imagined possible to do with my hands. Now I spend some of my time teaching the young people who work with me.'

  • Nice

    Got this as a gift for my mother to use as a prayer box. She loved the box, the meaning and quality. Shipping took a little longer than expected based on what I have experienced from Overstock in the past, but only because it has been so quick historically.
