Rated 3 out of 5 by txcavemaid Pretty ata distance
Its pretty at a distance but don't look too close! You will then see how the paint is out of line and spills over. The one I was sent is very dark with an over abundance of navy blue paint. I took some light paint and did a soft rub to help lighten it. It does look nice on the wall. Be warned.... as with much of the Egyptian stuff, don;t drop it or knock it as it will break. The resin used is not very strong. Be sure to use heavy, strong screws with molly bolts when hanging this piece as it is heavy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Laurel Sloppy painting mars great item
This would have been a very beautiful piece except that the "hand painting" looks to have been done by children. Paint is slopped over it's edges making the item look cheap on close inspection. Up on wall behind a sofa or something might be fine as you wouldn't notice the detail so much. It's still a lovely piece, but it's a pity that sloppiness and poor workmanship made this less than it should be. I would have liked to have done the painting myself. I may see if I can remove the paint and give it a go myself. Returning it from Canada is such a hastle with no guarantee that the new one would be any better painted.
