Testing the Waters Cherub Sculpture
Perfect for My Small, Outdoor Fountains
After 12 years, our verdigris concrete pineapples finally deteriorated and forced a buying decision for replacements. Most of those run $75. So I turned to Designs Toscano's website to see what they offered and found these. At just about two feet high and a little over a foot wide at most, they were perfect for our 18 inch square outdoor fountains. Nice and heavy but fortunately hollow. These do not come pre-piped/drilled for fountain use. It would be nice if DT would offer both a drilled and non-drilled version of these. However, I simply enlarged the bottom air hole to accommodate the plastic tubing and drilled a hole in the "bowl" of the shell. Using a wire hanger to thread the tubing, they were piped in minutes and are now bubbling away. And, using one of Designs Toscano's email coupon codes, I got 20% off bringing the pair to under $200 plus shipping.

A joy to behold
THis is a piece that I have owned for over 10 years. I always put it in the garden where I can see it because I love it so.
It is very well made and that is important to me since I am an artist myself.
This is worth the money and you can display it in the house or garden.
I think it would look lovely in the house on a pedestal.

Beautiful Water Feature
I received this about a week ago with the intention of using it in my pond. I seated it on top of a cinder block which raised it just above water level. I then ran a hose from the pump to the spot between the cherub's back and shell. The water fell at just the right angle into the base of the shell and dripped out the front back into the water. Didn't have to drill any holes and the size, weight and detail makes it such a beautiful focal point for the pond. I would highly recommend this piece.
