Have you ever jumped in the ocean and wondered what lies beneath you? Your imagination runs wild and sometimes you just rather not know. But, what if I am missing out on something absolutely amazing? We have all stumbled upon this at least once in our lives. Should I or shouldn't I? We all need to take chances whether they pay off or not. You don't want to spend your life saying "what if..." The swimmer in the image has jumped in the water and is debating whether to conquer his fear of seeing what is actually beneath him. Something exciting awaits him, if he will take the chance and conquer his fears. Things don't always work out the way we want them to, but at least we can say we tried. I can live with that. The city below is the beautiful city of Prague.

We use the finest wood available. The wood is given a look of forged, hammered metal. It looks like an old pewtered mug one would find in an European castle. The frame will fit well with a contempory environment or a traditional home. The finish is neutral with a width of 2 5/8" and Rabbet 5/8".
