    The Ultimate Sri Lankan Gypsy Reward Package: Everything you get with the Sri Lankan Gypsy reward packages, but we're substituting one very special, large-scale batik from the artist's private family collection! This is a gorgeous, dyed cloth piece depicting horses in motion. The process to create something like this is intensely laborious and time-consuming. ABSOLUTELY ONE OF A KIND!
