Mademoiselle de la Danse Sculpture 4.7 5 3 3
Looks like stone but feels like plastic Bought this as a present largely because it advertised a "faux-stone" finish. I assumed this meant the resin was covered in a stone-like finish but the texture was more like plastic. It does however look great sitting on your mantel or bookshelf. Impressive size and appearance, but when it comes to being up close to it and touching it there's something left to be desired, especially for the price. July 27, 2014
Mademoiselle is a hit! What a stunning bust! Was hesitant to order her, but fell in love with her before I even got the shipping box totally opened. Great detail and the sculpture itself is amazing. Looks like she is moving as you look at her. I am thrilled with this purchase. I will enjoy her for many, many years. Thank you. January 3, 2014
Captivatingly Delightful When viewing this sculpt, the subject is so alive that you might expect her to turn her head in your direction at any moment; you can virtually hear her carefree laughter. The item description almost says it all. I have a special love for this piece, so cutting just a little slack, I will mention that the applied "faux stone finish" seems only to hinder & obstruct her beauty rather than to highlight it. But overall, a delight to finally own. November 8, 2012
