We stopped by this wonderful wood art gallery. What brilliant wood art pieces, that are hand craved and we want to buy all of them. We bought a really wonderful wood craving that definitively represents the fabulous time we had.

Lots of HUGE wood sculptures that were cool to see. Other wood products for sale. Prices just slightly lower than beach vendors and stores. Enjoyed watching them use chain saws and other woodworking tools to make the wood items.

We purchased a nice wooden bowl. It was carefully wrapped by the cashier (paper and bubble wrap) to help survive the trip home. I really enjoyed the woodwork in the shop and would have loved to purchase more.

We just stopped in here to look around on the way back from the waterfall & it was a lovely shop. There were wood sculptures, native art masks, & wood carvings.

There were several large sculptures that were interesting, but the prize were the small bowls and exotic wood items at excellent prices.
