The package arrived today -- very well packed and the statues are very good. I have spent over 30 years in Asia -- quite a bit of that in Thailand and a little in Cambodia and Laos. It has been difficult to find reproductions of this quality and I salute you for your effort and your success.

The statue has arrived. It is in a very nice position in our main entrance area and looks wonderful;-). Thank you again and best regards.
Many, many thanks. The Buddha is just perfect! I couldn't be any happier with his countenance, posture and the workmanship. And the little Manjusri is wonderful! I was not familiar with the symbolism of this figure--it is very intriguing.
