Announcement   As for the indisputable king of the Southwestern Sonoran Desert landscape, it’s the almighty Saguaro Cactus! DESERT GALLERY specializes in one of a kind art-works that have been created exclusively from the inner wooden-skeleton of the Saguaro Cactus, often referred to as “Ribs”. As for the naturally imperfect "Saguaro Cactus Ribs", they are multi-colored, multi-sized, twisted, bent and each and every "Rib" is characteristically seasoned under the harsh desert sun rays.

The native (Tucson, Arizona USA) Saguaro Cactus commonly grow to enormous statue, often weighing 2 - 6 tons and also reaching heights in excess of 50 feet. On occasion, the Saguaro Cactus will parish for unknown natural reasons. Then and over a span of many long hot days, the then dead Saguaro will even shed all of those outer green layers and certainly all of those exceptionally dangerous prickly thorns! Then after a lengthy natural decomposition process, all that will eventually remain is a “Skeletal Trunk” as shown in the photos. As for the skeletal trunk that remains, it’s comprised of many wooden “Ribs" that are considerably harder and no doubt stronger than one might expect. As for the long term longevity, no special treatment required and the “Saguaro Ribs” and they will continue age naturally without any special treatment and/or care on your part.

Although the Saguaro Cactus is not a threatened or endangered species, Arizona does enforce specific regulations regarding the harvesting of cactus skeletons-ribs from the desert floor. Please be assured that we take great pride and strictly abide by all State regulations first and foremost. Always considerate of what is in the best interest and long-term preservation of the desert that we so dearly love.


God Bless,

HEED THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS! AVOID! I gave them a chance, even communicated prior to purchasing…now I’m out the money and refuse to spend any more on this piece of junk that should’ve been a nice gift. This is my worst ever online experience. I don’t believe in negative reviews; this called for an exception. -Did not arrive/ship in time to be delivered by our agreed upon time. -Was significantly different than the listing design, which was assured to me. Additionally, the craftsmanship was very sloppy. -Packaging was terrible and it was inevitably broken upon arrival. The “insured package” is not for your benefit. Etsy will protect the seller on damages and you must pay to return for a “refund”. Communication is futile; seller is rude, defensive and aggressive. Seller takes no responsibility and will place blame elsewhere.

Unfortunately, this does happen and there is always two sides of the story. As for this order, it was missed marked at $65 rather than $150. I honored the order anyway and the shipping costs were $38. Whenever orders are made late in the Holiday season, I’m branded as a miracle worker! Nonetheless, the post office is always involved and they are very careless during the Holidays. As for shipping, a piece of plywood was actually placed over the top of the mirror and it still broke! Once again, I apologize for events that are entirely out of my control.

I purchased this item on Dec 14th 2016, it is now Jan 11th 2017, and I still have not received my purchase, I would not recommend est.com to anybody.

As per our policy, there is a minimum two week grace period because all that we do is custom made to order! As for the orders made during the late Holiday season and with respect of all the postal holidays and my own personal time off, additional delays should be expected as well. I’m sorry that this happens and I sincerely wish that it never happens…but it unintentionally happens from time to time!
