If your not familiar with NOVICA, then your in for a treat. NOVICA is a wonderful website in association with National Geographic that provides artisans around the world an opportunity to share and sell their hand-crafted goods with the world.
I love NOVICA! I was first introduced to this great website when I won a gift certificate. I was thrilled when I got the chance to review their website and received a $25 gift certificate. NOVICA offers a variety of hand-crafted products starting under $5. I chose a Recycled Metal Cupid's Arrow Sculpture which normally retails for $40.95 but on sale for $19.99.
Recycling bolts and auto parts, Miguel Mejia creates a whimsical sculpture. The heart is pierced by Cupid's arrow and is totally in love.

I'm Juan Miguel Mejía Caillahua, born June, 30, 1978 in Lima. I'm a self-taught and impassioned artist, satisfied with the wonderful artistry I carry in my hands. I was only a 13 year-old child when I began to make my own toys, especially gargoyles. I used to tear apart other toys and use their components to create my own versions. That's how I got into making sculptures, but this time recycling mechanical parts. At that time, I was also very much into music and played on my dad's guitar. I composed about 30 original tunes for my heavy metal band.
"I would like to send Andean greetings to Novica clients. I would like to thank you for your company and support when you visit this virtual gallery featuring my sculptures. The fact that you can see them from your home fills me with the desire and energy to continue creating more art works."
