"I gave this away"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This looked nice in the picture, but the piece itself looked scary. In profile, this zebra has a mouth full of white teeth as if its grinning. The detail work on the front of the face was beautiful, but the paint on the eyes was very sloppy and they looked strange, like goats eyes. I thought about repainting it, but I was honestly unnerved by it when I unwrapped it, and put it in the utility room in my building so someone else could have it if they wanted.
