St. Michael the Archangel Sculptural Wall Frieze
Worth the wait.
I ordered this piece and when I received it I was disappointed as it was damaged in shipping. I notified Design Toscano and they shipped a replacement out right away.The second one was also damaged and it appeared it cracked in the drying process. This was on the back and would not be visible when on wall, however the crack was between the hanging hooks. I felt this could be unsafe to hang. I contacted Design Toscano and they sent another replacement. This one also arrived with hairline cracks. Due to the texture of the piece and my ability to fix it I did so. They allowed a little discount for my having to do this, which was nice. I didn't mind doing this because it is a very beautiful piece and I felt it was worth the extra effort and time. The piece has excellent detail and color. It actually looks like a piece of finely carved stone.
I would suggest to the manufacturer, being it is hollow, to fill it with some type of foam to give it extra durability.

I was hopeful the image in the catalogue did not give the false impression of detail based on the picture size. The frieze, when received, did not disappoint! The sculpt was produced with wonderful movement and realism.

great accent piece
understated, classical piece. in general, I've noticed that Toscano does a much better job with classical reproductions than with faux-bronze items, since the bronze paint is uneven & chips off, while plaster pieces that look like marble (like this & Creation of Adam) look much better & are less garish.

I ordered this Frieze for my home and it is perfect beside my Wine Grotto as the Archangel battles the Devil, lol.
The quality is fantastic and often it is the first thing that people remark on when entering my home.
Wish there were more Gothic and Rennaissance Friezes in the Master Italian Artists!!!!
