Rated 2 out of 5 by JoeManley Finish peels off within a few months.
I bought two of these statues to sit on stone columns at the end of my driveway. They were the perfect size and looked great until the paint of whatever they are finished with started flaking off in large sections. Less than a year later they are a mottled, multi color mess that greets me whenever I come home. I would not recommend this statue if you are using it outside for any amount of time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MelFazzio Awesome Gargoyle
I bought this guy for the corner peak of my balcony. Amazing detail!!! In fact, because of the extreme detail, my original placement of him has been changed. I couldn't hide the back of this guy agaist the railing like originally planned. I had to mount him higher up right on the railing so you could see his really awesome detail in his wings & tail.
Only one thing i wasn't aware of... He's not very heavy. I think it might be hollow, so its taking a little more planning than expected to mount him. I do not want it to get broken.

by Dragondoctor Would not recommend for outdoor use
We purchased 2 of your Boden Gargoyle sentinel statues and permanently mounted them on columns at the start of our driveway. Unfortunately, both of them were unable to withstand being outdoors. The photos in your catalog showed them in an outdoor setting and we also have Odin the tree stump that has held it's finish just fine. They look horrible and now we are stuck with trying to find a good way to remove them without damaging the columns. We have attached a photo of each gargoyle for your review.
Are there any suggestions for repairing them? Is there anything your company can do to help us with this issue?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jeanette Beautiful, but the base was defective.
The gargoyle is beautiful, but it arrived with a silver-dollar sized chip out of the back of the base. We touched it up with paint rather than put up with the hassle of sending it back. I was a bit disappointed in the material and weight of the base. If it were heavier, the statue would be more stable and these kind of chips wouldn't happen. Other than that, I am very satisfied. The detail is wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sealawyer Great Detail & Good Color
Boden Gargoyle is a fine piece. I bought two to stand in my yard and they're standing up to the hot rainy summer. The color and detail are perfect and they shipped very well.
Weight and heft is about the minimum I'd trust for free standing outside, and I wouldn't mind if there was a slightly larger version available or a "matching" (i.e. color & style) stand for them.

by SabersDad I love the gargoyles!
My wife bought me Boden and Argos for Christmas and I just love them! We modified them just slightly by adding red rhinestones for eyes and then we mounted them in two different areas around the house. The only thing that would have made that easier would have been the inclusion of some kind of mounting bracket or perhaps a pedestal made for them that could be sold separately. We got creative and made a multilevel pedestal for Argos to stand on by the back door and a platform for Boden to sit on out on the front of the garage. He looks great out there standing guard over the household!
