Wing of Icarus Sculptural Metal Wall Frieze
Looks better in the picture than in the flesh
Painted Sheet Metal with a little Made in China sticker on the back. Based on the price of the item it certainly did not meet expectations. Had it been about half the cost it would have rated higher.

First off I just want to say. I ordered this piece on (02/05/14) and it was delivered (02/07/14); wow! As for the piece itself; it is beautifully made. The contrast in the brushing on the metal of the wings and the feathers to the background; really makes it pop in the light. The wings themselves are pitched to actually be a 3 dimensional piece. Which makes taking a feather duster and cleaning it easy and painless. Easy two hole mounting spots are on the back of the metal back.

Wonderful Wall Art!
The details on this great piece are very carefully executed and it has been the object of much admiration by guests as they pass it in my entry hall. I couldn't be more impressed with the quality and appearance!

INTERESTING DESIGN BUT ONLY FAIR QUALITY
VERY INTERESTING DESIGN, BUT IS ESSENTIALLY A POOR QUALITY SHEET METAL OBLONG LIKE A SHOE BOX LID WITH THE WING ATTACHED. THE COLORS ARE TRUE VERDIGRIS AT TOP FADING TO A COPPER SHADE THEN TO BRONZE. THE "BOX" ITSELF IS DARK BROWN. DID NOT HANG FOR A FEW WEEKS AND QUICKLY FOUND THE ITEM WARPED/OR SUSTAINED A SMALL DENT EASILY - NOT A STURDY PIECE. HUNG OVER KING SIZE MAHOGANY BED WITH COPPER WALL SCONCES TO EACH SIDE ON A GOLDEN TAN WALL AND IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL FROM A DISTANCE, BUT CLOSE UP YOU CAN SEE THE ITEM IS NOT AS FABULOUS AS IT APPEARS ON FIRST VIEWING. I DO LIKE THE DESIGN VERY MUCH, BUT WISH THE QUALITY WAS BETTER.

True to picture mostly
The wing was slightly more verdigris than the image, but that may be due to the darkest location I put mine in. I was pleased to see it was more 3D than I thought, the wing tips loft up off the metal about 2 inches. Very pleased and lovely. Two precut holes on the top back corners to hang. Glad I didn't have to worry about a wire and it constantly being 1/16th of an inch too high on the left.

Good value for the price.
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the peice I have purchased several items from Design Toscano, and have yet to be disappointed with either quality or craftsmanship. All of the items matched with their descriptions exactly.Bob C.
