Grand Cathedral Angel Sculpture
Great for the price but requies maintenance planning.
I used the light weight shell of this statue as the basis for a monument for my late wife's grave. Appearance is great. However, it required modification and refinishing in order to sustain year-round weather requirements of New York; without doing so this would require inside storage during winter just as manufacturer indicates. Also, if planning to completely fill with concrete (as I did) know that this adds many hundered of pounds to original weight.
... (p.s. The bible and lantern in my project photo were added by me; the statue as manufactured has nothing in hands.)

beautiful product..but no plug for the hole in base?
Over all I am very happy with this purchase. Just assumed a plug would be included for the hole in which you can fill with sand

Its a beautiful addition to my garden
I see this magnificient angel every morning when I walk out into my garden. It's absolutely amazing, and I'm very pleased with my purchase. Delivery was fast, although there were some issues there (it did not come during the specified time frame, and when I called the shipping company they didn't even know where the statue was. It did all get worked out in the end, but the shipping aspect seemed rather informal and unprofessional.) Light weight for the size, well made and very attractive. My only negative is that it can't be outdoors in freezing weather--so I will have to bring it inside for winter.

Love the angel she is beautiful
I love this looks great and is impressive. The only bad thing is that I am not so sure how durable seems a little light weight for its size. If it was heavier I am sure it would be able to be left outside all winter.
I do recommend this and actually I am looking forward to actually having her in the house in the winter. She will be placed in the living room at Christmas and will face outside in the picture window. WIll light her up also.
Shipping was incredibly FAST!!! Got it within a couple days of ordering it. There was a slight delivery problem. This was supposed to be brought to the front door by the delivery man but he needed someone to help him get it off the truck and carry it. Good thing I had someone here that could do that as I have heart problems and could not do it. I checked with the delivery freight company when they scheduled the delivery and they told me I would not need to do anything at all. Guess they forgot to tell the delivery man.
This is my second garden angel from here and will not be my last. Looking forward to getting more as they add class and beauty to my gardens

Reverent piece of art
I purchased this art piece for my church, where she will preside over the Nativity scene (elevated behind the stable), holding the "Star of Bethlehem" in her hands. Then, during the lenten season, she will hold a purple cloth and crown of thorns. At Easter time we will change the cloth to white and add cascading Easter lilies. The decorating opportunities are endless! One minor detraction: there are minor flaws in the finished product. I'm not sure if they are in the mold or happen during her construction.

This beautiful angel has become the talk of our neighborhood. We've met so many nice people since we put her in our garden. People come by just to look at her. It was easy to add sand to her for ballast. She is everything that she is advertised to be.
