Hebe, the Goddess of Youth Statue: Large
Beautiful decorative statue but how do we clean it?
Hebes has been a great addition to my garden. I love it's delicacy. It has been a topic of conversation among friends and family. I recommend it. Note that is not made in stone so it is supceptible to wind and the polymer material can be stained. The size is perfect but I wish it was a little heavier.
I have this statue for only few months but it is turning grayish due to rain and the dirt from leaves of the surrounding trees, this dirt is leaving marks in the statue.
HOW COULD I CLEAN IT. Please anyone send me some information.

This statue is lovely and very detailed.
I bought this item as a gift. It is just beautiful. I would like to see one offered that is a bit bigger, but not as big as the larger one offered. This size looks best on a base. It really shows it off nicely. It was an excellent gift that was well received. I highly recommend. It is easily moved around in the landscape which is a big plus.

nice but disappointed in the lack of quality workmanship
the statute is nice. The workmanship was terrible. The base is not square or rectanglular. It is just an unmeasured lope sided base and the bowl of cream Hebe is holding is not smoothed out as the rough holes and scuffs from making it are very obvious. not the quality one would expect for the money spent on it.

Nice statue, a little smaller than I would have liked, but OK

She is just lovely. A little on the short side, so I will eventually get the pedestal for her.

I opened the box and quickly decided she was not going outside. My package arrived in a very timely manner and I am pleased with this product. It has one minor flaw underneath her shirt where a chipped place/ hole is located. The flaw isn't visible to the eye unless your looking for it. I have her standing on a nice table next to a marble fireplace. Perfect!

Nice piece, but poorly finished
This was my second statuary purchase from Toscano. I was really pleased with the first piece, but not so much with this one. I could see the mold marks on the side and how badly they had been cleaned. It looked like it was done with a grinder, and the person operating it just went down the sides with no concern for maintaining quality. Really disappointing since this is a nice piece. I considered shipping it back, but it does go well in the garden and the price was right on sale. I have some mold making experience, so I can fix some of it, but I shouldn't have to spend that time.

Hebe arrived on time and in perfect condition.
We had another Hebe that we had ordered a few years back, but recently a large tree branch broke while my wife and I were gone and when we returned we found Hebe laying face down on the path all broken up. Well, a long story short, She was such a beautiful addition to the yard that we had to have her back in her place of honor in our garden.
We also have "Windblown", which is about the same size as Hebe and they are the perfect size for our small garden yard (approx 60' x 45')
Thank you for having such a wonderful selection.
