The minerals are from around the world: the USA, India, Brazil, Botswana, Peru, and Africa. A joyful piece, using white to express the purity of joy and contentment with hints of charcoal grey and silver, of course the roots are a mix of black and bronze. When it is illuminated in the evening, it has a soft quiet glow. A two piece item, the sculpture and the LED white light natural wood light base. Overall size : 17"h x 10"w x 7" depth. The square wood base is 2"h x 4" x 4".
The Old Soul is not necessarily about age, but of individuals who have a great appreciation and understanding of things in life and can often be wiser beyond their age or appearance. Their walk in life is often alone in many ways and may even feel out of place in society, but yet it can be one that leads to grace and peace. They are seekers of finding truth, knowledge, and enlightenment of their own spirit in a contemplative way, and sharing the beauty of the world to others.
The LED wood base light comes with a generous 6 foot cord with on/off in line switch, 110v, white C7 LED bulb included (easily replaceable!).
