Gaston, the Climbing Gothic Gargoyle Statue: Large
At this price point, I expected better quality. One upper tooth is broken off, and there is a 4" dark brown paint run down the back leg. It was not cleaned up properly after being removed from the mold, and has residue blobs all over it. I barely touched one blob and it fell off and took the paint with it. Minus the poor quality, I like it, except for the UGLY color. We're going to paint it a different color and detail it before we hang it. All in all.....just plain sloppy on the finish work!

Our item was delivered still wet and one of it's teeth was chipped.

I love this gargoyle!
I love this gargoyle! The size is perfect - not too big and not too small. It will be a great feature in our garden. But the color is a bit boring and pale, hopefully it gets a nice patina after a while.

Original and detailed
After adding paint to highlight the Gargoyles eye's, we placed it on the wall overlooking the dinning table. With excellent detail this statue both catches the eye and sends a chill down ones spine due to it's finely detailed mischievous expression and the sense of mystery it conjures up. This has been a fine addition to our collection and we are extremely happy with it's quality.

My husband and I saw this hanging from a house in Church HIll, Va and just had to have it. I gave it to him for his 50th birthday and he loves it!!!! This is our 5th gargoyle - and by far the best!

plastic like appearance
I should have gone with my initial gut reaction to the look of this gargoyle. I wanted so much for it to appear to be stone that i filtered out the apparent plastic like look of it thinking that the computer image didn't do it justice especially in light of it's excellent reviews. Well - it looks like plastic because it is. Nothing stone like here. The detail is excellent so I gave it a 2 star rating. I hung it at a distance to alleviate some of that plastic appearance...but frankly, I'm just kidding myself. No. If you want sometime that resembles stone I most definitely don't recommend this product.

It's mounted on the entry way as you walk up to the front door. It fits perfectly.

Gaston was my very first order from Desing Toscano. Imagine my disappointment when he arrived with a broken toe. Not just broken, but open, he couldn't go out into the weather like that. One quick call and a new Gaston was on his way! Thanks DT! He was, and still is, perfect. He stands guard at the corner of my house and catches everyone's eye.
