The Veiled Maiden Sculptural Bust
kind of creepy
I should have taken the advice of the other reviewers. The bust is creepy if you look really close. She looks like a character from a Tim Burton movie. BUT it is true if you put her up high or in a shadow, she looks ok. But the authentic sculpture is one of the most beautiful so I'm sure I'm biased. Some places on the bust has gray and is very rough to the touch. My vision was of a smooth polished alabaster material. If you expect that, you'll be disappointed.

Amazingly realistic in appearance
I purchased this because of the veil draping, hoping it would look as good in person - it does. I am so happy with this product, I have had numerous comment on the realistic appearance. It is light weight yet looks substantial like made of stone. I have had it over a year and it has held up without a problem.

I received this bust as a Christmas gift but was disappointed in the detail. It does not look near as good as it is pictured in your catalog. The face is very indistinguishable and almost looks like a corpse. I wanted this for a long time but now I just put it to the back of a shelf and in shadow.

What a beautiful bust. It catches the light and shadows very dramatically! Looks great in my home!

At first sight, my Veiled Maiden is beautiful, but upon closer inspection, her coloring is not what I thought it would be.
She has grey and white "stripes," almost like faded newspaper print, and it would look so much prettier if she was a pure white or ivory color.
Also, over her left breast is a "line," which appears almost to be a stencil coloring.
I think she's beautiful otherwise, and I have placed her on top of some antique books.
But I just wish her coloring was not so irregular.
Otherwise, a great buy.

This statue has superb detail and form. It goes perfectly with my bust of Antinous.
Although Antinous lived in the 2nd century,A.D. he could never have expected that his "beautiful" face. The attention to detail is fantastic. The monetary value of the product is in direct proportion to the piece you receive. This has been true of every item I have ever ordered from Toscano, each piece complementing every other in my collection. I will continue to order from this company, as time and finances allow.

What a horrible looking bust! The original is so beautiful but this one was so awful and scarey that after I unpacked it, I automatically repacked it and called for it to be returned. So very disappointed and now I have to pay for the return shipping. Talk about adding insult to injury!
