Boden Gargoyle Sentinel Sculpture
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?

Excellent quality and value.
Item met or exceeded expectations. Looks even better than pictures on website.

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.

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.

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!

Love all the detail!
My husband has wanted a gargoyle for years and when we found this site I just couldn't resist getting him the two he liked the best. He loves them! They were packaged in heavy duty styrofoam and sturdy cardboard and were in perfect condition when they arrived. The detail on them is phenomenal and they are a great size too. The only thing that could have made them better would have been if they had offered some kind of mounting bracket so we could secure them to the outside of the house. Otherwise we are tickled pink with Boden and his buddy Argos.

This product has great features.
Couldn't wait to receive Boden the gargoyle, & when Boden did arrive, I definitely was not disappointed. I'm in love with Boden, & I hope to be able to purchase Argos someday.

The tiny, well-done details are much appreciated.
The gargoyle, Boden, has such great attention to detail front and back for such a beautifully gruesome character!! Thanks for the shivers when I look at him!
