Raptor, Gargoyle Surveyor of the Realm Sculpture
Still stunning 4 years after purchase
We purchased this statue 3-4 years ago shortly after moving into our new home. Raptor is stunning and always sparks conversation when visitors stop by. He is good in a garden or the house, there is weight in the base. The first statue arrived damaged, Design Toscano didn't hesitate to dispatch a new one for us free of charge. It was a pleasant surprise as we live in Europe, so had assumed they wouldn't bother. Excellent customer service. I would have to say the only thing is dusting him is a bit tedious as he is so perfectly detailed, but in the grand scheme of how happy we are, it doesn't even register as a complaint!! Happy customers in Holland.

This gargoyle is very well made and has some weight to it. Looks perfect on my table with a candleabra in front of it, greeting visitors as they walk in the door. I am quite happy with the height and overall quality, exactly as described, if not better

Great detail but picture is very deceiving...
Make sure you read dimensions...

Great looking gargoyle
This is a wonderful piece, however even though the dimensions are listed, because of the way it is pictured in front of the house, one expects it to be much larger than it actually is. It must be up on a high pedestal or the house behind it is very faraway. It's a cool piece but disappointing in size.
