Fascinating and out of ordinary Art have always grasped my attention. I feel that there is something enigmatic and influential behind.
In my early 20s, I was very fortunate to be able to travel a lot to many different, exotic and exciting places.
Traveling has always been my passion. I remember as a little girl I was always fascinated by movies about tropical islands, and sailing in the ocean. Who wasn’t?
The question was how can I do it if I don’t have the money to travel the way I want?
One day, it was a Friday I still remember it hit me! I was going to join a Cruise Line Company so I can travel, at the same time get paid!
The problem was I had no idea how I would do that.
A year and a half later, after careful planning and convincing my parents I joined one of the largest cruise line companies in the world.
I can’t write the whole story here as I probably need to put it in a book but the most important thing for me was finding my way to travel, and I did it for five incredible years.
I was blessed with my position on board the ships as it gave me the opportunity always to go out and take tours to the different islands and places we have visited. I had enough time to explore and create many incredible moments along with exceptional people from all over the world.
So one of my obsessions was to go to local artist shops and spend time there enjoying the artisan crafted treasures.
I sure bought quite a few too – all from different places.
Unique art gift ideas or out of ordinary Artwork is an excellent way to impress someone who values and appreciates Art.
I am delighted to present few of many fascinating and out of ordinary Art, which makes an exceptional gift for your finest people in your life.
Piece and color emanate from this delightful wall hanging, made in the traditional art of arpilleria (patchwork).
Each tiny figure is three dimensions and lavishly embroidered.
A display rod can be slipped through an opening at the top.
The artist’s name is Eleodora Salvatierra, and she was born in Cangallo-Cochapata province.
Her artwork reflects her ideas and feelings. She believes that Art is within us, and all we need to do is find a way to express it.
Eleodora partners with NOVICA to sell her Artwork and she is very grateful for this opportunity as it gives her the chance to provide a better live for her four sons.
I also would like to mention the power of colors since this lovely Art is filled with many bright and happy colors.
Color Therapy is well known to get you in a good mood and boost your health. Even if we are not aware of the effects colors have on a spiritual level surrounding yourself with colors would change your state of mind.
If you don’t believe me try leaving in a black and white environment for a while, and then quickly go to a place where you are surrounded by colors, and you will see the effect.
Remember the first time you went to the Carribean? If you’ve been there, you will notice that colors are everywhere, and your mood is never bad with a stress level of zero.
The Trade Nature Folk Wall hanging is an original gift which would touch the heart of a true Art lover.
The hibiscus is the flower of tropical majesty.
The meaning of hibiscus differs depending on the culture. Giving a hibiscus flower to the receiver acknowledges their delicate beauty.
Nyoman Karsa, the artist behind this beautiful wood panel, has been carving sculptures from ebony, suar, and hibiscus woods since 1987.
He shares that before creating a sculpture he first sees it in his mind then makes a draft on the wood pieces. After that, he is chiseling the initial form and detailing the parts. The last step of the process is smoothing and polishing.
Nyoman’s Wood Art is a beautiful artisan-crafted treasure that would make a wonderful gift!
The Sacred Heart was first venerated in the 11th-century monasteries. Devotion to the Sacred Heart is a dedication to Jesus himself.

DAlcazarS, his artistic name, attended Santiago de Chile’s Art Institute after becoming fascinated with this type of work.
Truly unique art piece that with no doubt is one-of-a-kind.
Interesting idea of an abstract person with folded in prayer hands.
With this elegant sculpture, Francis Agbete explores the concept of spirituality.
He comes from a family of traditional wood carvers. He and his father have a workshop that is well known to tourists and hospitality companies.
They have showcased their designs at various wood fairs and international exhibitions such as the Ghana International Wood Product Fair, FESTAC at the International Festival of Arts and Culture, in Burkina, Faso.
This inspirational sculpture is an excellent way to remind us always to be grateful for what we have in our life. It would be a good idea each one of us to have it in place that you can see it daily and practice gratitude.

His woodwork makes him feel good as it is a way of preserving an aspect of Peruvian artistry.
Give this dazzling sun mirror to someone who would enjoy its warm light flowing through its design.
