The first time I saw this I wanted it immediately. The artwork is incredible. I have it in my living room and I just love it. I have always admired this type of artwork and have wanted to have a few pieces. This is my first but will not be my last. I think it is so beautiful. I love it.

Gifted this for Christmas to my sister, and she seemed delighted with it. It should look lovely in a home which sits in the foothills of the Blue Ridge where wildlife is abundant.

I was attracted to this item online and ordered it as something of an impulse buy. Im glad I did. Its a gorgeous and intricate folk design with beautiful workmanship, fascinating paintwork, and brilliant colors. Im very pleased! My only problem: Where am I going to display it to best advantage?

"Very Nice Sculpture"

This is a beautiful work of art, but the tail did not easily fit into the body. I was afraid to force it to work, the tail was larger in diameter than the hole in the body. Otherwise, wonderful.
