Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture
Captures the morning light
Emmett is a solid ten pounds and can withstand a good deal of wind. I have him out on the balcony surveying the Atlantic Ocean. I particularly like his surface texture which captures the morning light brilliantly.

Not weathering outside well
This statue is advertised as a garden statue. I discovered after less than a year on my porch the paint is peeling on the statue. I moved him inside immediately and moved my other gargoyle under the porch in hopes that the same thing will not happen to him. I am heart broken because I love my gargoyles. It should be advertised as an indoor statuary because it will not hold up to the weather.

Emmett The Perched Protector High Above My Garden
When Emmett arrived, I opened the box and almost was frightened to pull him out because he was so real-to-life I thought he was alive! I mustered the courage, though, and I'm so glad I did. He looks even more impressive on a ten-foot perch high above my backyard English garden guarding the premises. Even though gargoyles are traditionally supposed to be scarey, Emmett has an appealing and somewhat friendly look on his face. He is a wonderful addition to my garden!!

I have purchased several items from this catalog over the years and Emmett has always reminded me of a friend at work. When he retired, this was the perfect gift as he loves his garden and Emmett fits right in. Items from Toscano are always high quality, unique, and carefully packaged for shipping. Maybe a little pricey.

Love the look. I bought two last year ... both suffered fairly severe winter damage.
I suggest bringing them in to a garage or storage shed once the weather moves into the winter cycle. I bought replacements and I have sprayed them with an aerosol shellac ... we'll see how they hold up.
