Wing of Icarus Sculptural Metal Wall Frieze
Pretty but verrrrrrry warped
Such a beautiful piece but completely warped to were it is unhangable. I actually have to have a piece welded to the back to hang it in such a way that all corners and nailed. Badley made but still want to make it work. I think Toscano needs to check the quality of the items they sell. I have bought from them long ago and it was just fine but after reading other reviews I am not alone in this piece. Not worth the money and time. Think twice. Thanks!

A bit Disappointing , but still a great art piece...
Item arrived in good shape; very carefully packed, excepted for several scrapes in the base sides. It's smaller than I expected - if you go by catalog photos. The hangers in the back are slotted holes at the two top corners, making it very hard to hang. We may have to drill holes in the curled back sides and run a wire too make hanging easier
All in all, I love the scripture, colors are wonderful and the story behind on it as such a teachable moment. I just can't decided where to hang just yet in my house.

Definitely a show piece
This is one of the best items I purchased. Friends and Family have made comments on how beautiful this piece and how mesmerizing it is.

I was a little disappointed in size and color. Three feet long but narrower than stated. Still worked where it was intended to be placed. More green than what is in photograph.

Very Cool frieze
This item looks even better than the catalog/website photos show. It's a little darker than the photo, but it fits my color scheme to a T. It is quite attractive, and I am really impressed with it. Well worth the money!

You can't go wrong with this piece
This is an amazing piece and made well. I get so many comments on this piece. Even neighbors walking by who have seen this through the window have commented on this. Really a great buy.

Looks better in the picture than in the flesh
Painted Sheet Metal with a little Made in China sticker on the back. Based on the price of the item it certainly did not meet expectations. Had it been about half the cost it would have rated higher.

First off I just want to say. I ordered this piece on (02/05/14) and it was delivered (02/07/14); wow! As for the piece itself; it is beautifully made. The contrast in the brushing on the metal of the wings and the feathers to the background; really makes it pop in the light. The wings themselves are pitched to actually be a 3 dimensional piece. Which makes taking a feather duster and cleaning it easy and painless. Easy two hole mounting spots are on the back of the metal back.
