Is It Lovely???

My friend, Paula, gave me this wonderful piece of art made in her village of Monterosso.  I had been looking for something very "sea-like" to hang on our wall (in the ever evolving "best dump in Liguria" as we like to call it) and she knew just the thing!  

Paula's husband, Angelo, is a 10th generation anchovy fisherman who worked often with my husband's grandfather and great seafood merchant, the original Luigi Guerrera.  All of lives seems to revolve around the sea.  Her present was perfect in ever way!

Grazie my friend...

P.S. If you like what you see, you can visit FABBRICA D'ARTE MONTEROSSO in Monterosso.  Maybe they can make something special for you.

Very beautiful gift! Personally appropriate, and pretty in it's own right.
