Life's Mysteries Cherub Statue
Extremely Lifelike, Great Detail
Though quite durable-looking, this beautiful piece is actually very delicate & flimsy. It has a hollow interior & therefore, as a previous reviewer mentioned, it isn't suitable for placement outdoors where harsh elements or windy weather will affect it. The detail, however, is extraordinary, the face is extremely realistic & the feathers of the wings are as well. Overall, it's a striking piece though I've decided to display it indoors to preserve it. I would also like to note that several air bubbles formed during casting so I decided to repair these w/ a gray mortar filler that I hand on hand already & which perfectly matched the color of the statue, and it now looks perfect. It wasn't necessary for me to do this, as the piece has a rugged, stoneware look on its own as is, however these flaws I felt were obvious upon close inspection, pitting on one ear, a large one on the crown of the head, and what appeared to be an open-chest wound to the angel's abdomen, all easily repaired.

just what i wanted for a garden scene
I did not get to see the real item. I sent it to my son for his birthday. I do however, have, Baby St. Francis and the hanging angel which I love. I have had them for many years and they stay outside and are still in great shape.
My son has kept his in his home for his wife to admire, since she is ill.
The angel reminded me of him when he was a child and loved the little creatures of nature, as all children do.

Darling face on this statue.
Was so glad to find this precious Cherub in your catalog. Over the years I have given Cherub statues to my son and daughter-in-law, as a loving reminder of a child they lost. This Cherub was different, his little face is so entrancing, gazing at the snail he found, just like our Kyle would have looked at a part of nature he loved. Please keep looking out for the out of the ordinary items you are famous for. And at good prices even an elder grandmother can afford.

I love this cherub. The only problem is that it is too light and i am afraid it will tip over in the garden when it gets real windy. I am using it in my screened in porch.

I enjoy looking at my Life's Mystery Cherub, It's lovely and looks so right in my garden.
My Life's Mystery Cherub statue is very pleasing to look at amongst my flowers and other garden features. It also has a nice look from the street as I enter my drive way. I'm looking forward to many years of seeing my Cherub compliment the creativity I put into my garden each new season. Thankyou.

Sweetest Cherub for my patio
When I saw this sweet cherub on another site that had been embellished and was selling for over $250.00, knew that I had to do my own. This piece was easy to paint a whitish color then I added golden colors plus some turquoise and he was transformed into a work of art.
I love this piece and so do many of my friends who have admired this "golden piece.
