I purchased this for my mother to replace a garden angel of hers that had broken. She is thrilled and really likes the elegant look of it. I have to say it fits nicely into her little garden and it feels like it will with stand the elements. It even looks just like stone, until you touch it. If I were to say anything negative about this statue, it is that I wish it were heavier. While not too light, it feels like it could be knocked down easily. Let's hope the nice wide base helps it out there.
