I adore this lovely artwork. It is surprisingly lightweight, but appears very substantial and in no way appears cheap or common. It is very distinctive, the design is unique and the carvings are very detailed, but at the same time is not fussy or busy. In fact, it is very serene and charming. I hung it on a wall in my enrty way that is painted in a pale blue-gray and the color of the wall shows in between the carving. It really comes to life and looks wonderful. I am very happy with this item and am sure I will enjoy it for many, many years. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for something nice to add to their home.
