The Tranquil Tortoise Garden Sculpture: Large
It was a gift.
My brother likes turtles, he has real one as a pet so I bought this for his garden as as a Christmas present. He was very happy with it. I have purchased such animals as alligators and dragons from Design Tuscano so I knew it would be high quality. I don't know about Ease of Maintenance as it hasn't gone outside yet. It looks to be easy but I have several statues that need annual repainting. I just finished repainting the alligator. On the other hand one small turtle I've had for 20 years has never needed any maintenance. Both are outside all year. I'm am looking forward to getting the new T-Rex but I might wait to see if a larger size will become available.

He is beautiful
I just love this tortoise. I can't even imagine how big the giant one is. This one seems huge. Great color. We coated him with more polyeurihane because of the sun in our area. Just wanted to make sure he doesn't age too quickly. The shipping was really fast.

I could only afford the smallest turtle but when it arrived i was blown away with the size and the look. This piece is amazing... It is so real and if this is the small turtle i cant fathom the grand one.. Nothing will show you the beauty of this cast until it arrives to you. worth every penny!

I just purchased this turtle and it was badly broken when I received it. The plastic was way too thin in places and most of the resin dried in the feet. This is a manufacturer issue but the turtle is absolutely beautiful and they are sending another one out free and a return tag for the broken one. This is a great piece so I hope they can get their manufacturers to raise the bar and go quality, not quantity.

I loved this turtle so much, the face is so realistic , the colors, and design of the turtle, reminds of Pokey that I grew up with as a child in NY.
