The Veiled Maiden Sculptural Bust
My daughter spent part of her summer in London for a study abroad experience, and she visited Chatsworth House, where the original statue is kept. I'm planning to give this sculpture to her for Christmas this year--it's a beautiful replica of the original, and it will be a nice reminder of her trip. I was lucky enough to catch the "Christmas in July" sale, so it was a bargain, too.

classy artistic bust
I'm pleased with the Veiled Maiden bust. It's nicely sculpted. It adds a touch of refinement to the room. I'm glad I got it. It looks just like the pic.

Intriguing and Mesmerizing !!!
This intriguing and mesmerizing statue has a haunting quality, which captures such strong emotion. It has become quite the conversation piece in my home, with many compliments, and some comments wherein the person viewing this little masterpiece found sad and somewhat frightening. I enjoy studying the intricate features and am so curious about the history and/or story behind this awesome statue. I can imagine an entire story, from beginning to end, capturing the interest of the reader or movie-goer.

The veiled maiden is a work of wonder.
The maiden is lost in thought behind a veil which drapes gracefully down and looks as though it would float in the wind.

kind of creepy
I should have taken the advice of the other reviewers. The bust is creepy if you look really close. She looks like a character from a Tim Burton movie. BUT it is true if you put her up high or in a shadow, she looks ok. But the authentic sculpture is one of the most beautiful so I'm sure I'm biased. Some places on the bust has gray and is very rough to the touch. My vision was of a smooth polished alabaster material. If you expect that, you'll be disappointed.

Amazingly realistic in appearance
I purchased this because of the veil draping, hoping it would look as good in person - it does. I am so happy with this product, I have had numerous comment on the realistic appearance. It is light weight yet looks substantial like made of stone. I have had it over a year and it has held up without a problem.
