I will be out of town for a week between April 5th and 15th, and so will not be shipping or open for visitors at the gallery. The Indigo Arts website will be active as always, I will respond to emails as soon as possible, and I will be able to ship orders after April 15th, 2024. Happy Eclipse everyone!

Note:
With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are often wrong. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments. USPS estimates only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments, and varying amounts for overseas shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

Carved wood sculpture, painted.
(9 1/2" h. x 9 1/2" w. x 9" d.).
See story below:

This sculpture is based on a true story which took place during Mozambique's terrible floods of March, 2000.  Much of the country was completely flooded, driving people to take refuge on rooftops and in trees.  Sophia Tedro gave birth to her daughter Rosita while she was taking refuge in a tree.  She and Rosita were rescued from the tree by a helicopter.   The story was published around the world, and has now entered into Mozambican folklore.  See accompanying photos from the Guardian, UK.
