Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I wanted. Excellent detail in depiction. The color is a grey hue which coordinates with my home color scheme. I cannot use the beige, vanilla, amber colors. December 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by If classic art is your style, you won't be disappointed This piece is absolute money and complements several other pieces in my parlor and dining room. The quality and workmanship are tops. The detailing is exquisite, down to the head of the beast behind Dionysus as he reclines on a animal skin. Also, a dog licking the bottom of the urn containing the wine. This is the fourth piece I have ordered from Design Toscano. Only the rest of the house to go! October 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great product for its price. Considering its price, size, and detailed durable workmanship, this frieze is truly a bargain. The reproduced signature of the original at the lower right-hand corner adds a special distinctive mark. I think this reproduction is one of your finest. June 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Baby Dionysus A charming piece in deep relief. The color is grey/white, but looks almost like marble. A very interesting statement full of myth, legend and lore. January 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very attractive wall sculpture The finish is not pure white as it may appear in the picture. Instead, the finish is more like "dark stone" or "dirty white". I actually like this finish better than pure white because the contrast between the light and dark parts add depth and texture to the sculpture. I only gave four stars for overall product quality and meets expectations because there are some "bubbles" in the background. However, these are minor defects that do not detract from the overall beauty of the sculpture. In addition, Thorvaldsen's signature can be found in the lower right portion of the sculpture. Design Toscano says that this product is made from a direct cast of the museum original. I am extremely happy with the level of detail of this work of art. July 2, 2012
