andquot;Joy, the Flower Angelandquot; Statue
When my mother died I was given some money to buy something as a remembrance of her. I first thought of a garden stone with a poem on it. When I saw this statue I kept thinking that I really liked it. I did think about the purchase for almost a year before finally ordering it. I am always leery of spending this amount of money for something I found on line and can't really see the quality until after the purchase.
The statue is very heavy, but there is a hole in the bottom where we will use a stake for help hold it upright.
There is only one flaw in the statue I have. When the wash was applied to the statue, it was not all wiped smoothly. I do have a few lines of black paint under her chin. I had considered returning and requesting a new statue. I hate the process of trying to return items I buy. Since the statue will be in a garden, no one will be looking under her chin.
I did purchase this item when there was a discount on angels. That discount did cover the cost of shipping. This is a heavy statue. Without the discount, I may not have made the purchase when the shipping and tax were added on. When I had looked at this statue previously, the discount only applied to items $100 or more, and this statue is listed at a few cents under that.
