"What was received is not what is pictured"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I loved the look of this dragon, and had asked for it as an Xmas gift, but it was sold out. I was very excited when it came back in stock and ordered it for myself. What I really liked was the beautiful backward curve over the tail. What was received is a side facing dragon, which, while the colors are the same, is not in fact the same sculpture. I am extremely disappointed.
