Novica - A Nice Site to Check Out

Novica is a site that, in association with National Geographic, features and sells the works of artisans from around the world. This includes rugs, furniture and other home decor pieces in addition to jewelry, apparel, paintings, sculptures, and musical instruments.

Their mission:

"We want to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity. And, we want to provide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values that only the Internet infrastructure can allow.

At the deepest essence of our philosophy, we want to create a bridge between you and the many talented artisans across the globe."
I was fortunate enough to get the wood Buddha sculpture above ... the detail is just beautiful!
