Rated 5 out of 5 by Snori67 Nice looking piece
This statue looks great. I have only 2 complaints:
1. The reliefs on the cuirass could have been more detailed.
2. I really wish the index finger wasn't bent!
Otherwise, this is a wonderful, and pretty accurate, piece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by juanruiz Very Nice Piece of Art
This was a Xmas gift for my son, who is a great fan of Classical Antiquity, and has seen the original on several occasions.
It is well-made, very attractive, and reasonably priced. He liked it a great deal

Rated 5 out of 5 by MARCVS GREAT BUY for a 2000th ANNIVERSARY
Another great purchasing experience from Design Toscano! As usual, the statue looks better in person than in photographs; particularly with this one, I thought the face was inaccurate in the photographs but in person the statue is very accurate to the original. Having said that, I do like the way photographs are taken and displayed on this website. Design Toscano is quite unique in selling such meaningful high-quality replicas of art like this. It is appropriate to purchase this iconic statue of Emperor Caesar Augustus on the 2000th anniversary of his death. This individual is a keystone of constitutional order; Rule of Law; public works, civil infrastructure, & civic service; tolerance but defense of state identity; generosity but individual responsibility; publicly accessible art & literature; timeless naturally sustainable social values & reason in nature; and, all wrapped into one, Augustus is simply a keystone of Western Civilization. Too many children in grade school across North America over the past 40+ years have been conspiratorially & deliberately uneducated about our ancient culture, Classical Antiquity. Regular quality history & civics education needs to be reconstituted into our grade school curricula… One cannot expect a well-informed citizenry if they generally know nothing of the origins & development of representative government and democracy while being ignorant of civics (how their nation is operated & its founding principles). …A proper history/civics curriculum will also yield more sales for Design Toscano! ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by bluelightseeker A piece of history.
Being a student of ancient history, I couldn't pass up this statue of Augustus Caesar. It's well-made with bonded marble and is highly detailed. It looks just like the picture. I am very pleased.

This Augustus statue is perfect for commanding the area around all my history books. The material is durable and resembles marble fairly well.
