Dear List Members,

Now that I am back from the two France shows and the Fourth of July holiday
weekend has wrapped up I would like to 'Officially' offer my NWA 5000
replicas. Since these are a Limited Edition, and I mean "Extremely Limited",

foremost was to keep them affordable and realistic. Considering all of the
financial and labor considerations, and the fact that these are all
'One-of-a-Kind' artworks, I believe I've priced these incredibly well and

Please find below the link to my Nature's Vault web site where the images
are located. Be sure to click on the first replica image to see eight more

approximately 40% of the original before cutting:

Here is an image of my artist, Judy, who did a fantastic job:

like to purchase, please reply! :)
