Birth of Venus Garden Statue
i received this for a present during the holidays. i rigged up a small pump and added so leaves so this is now an indoor fountain (see photo). now, what makes this even more entertaining is that i rigged the pump to "the clapper" so one can turn on or turn off the fountain with a few claps of the hand!

We love Venus!
This statue is in our master bath as the centerpiece. She is beautiful and looks much more expensive than her modest price. We put her in the center of a planter and surrounded her with angel vine plants.
Our home is fairly new. When people tour it, they rave about this beautiful display.

this product is just beautiful. The venus face is exquisite and the skin is so smooth and beautiful. Its added so much to my garden in my yard. Love the shell she rises from and her hair so flowing. Her figure is lovely and it has added so much to my memories of Floerence and seeing the statue. sp glad I bought it. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the arts and beauty.

lovely to look at
We have deer,rabbits,woodchucks --they all eat flowers so I do not plant them anymore -instead I decorate with gazing balls, glass light catchers & statues like this one. She is lovely esp when encirled by the greenery that slowly grows up to surrond her as the summer progresses. She's easy to clean with a light hosing off & I either bring her inside for the winter (Central New York can be rough at times) or make sure she is well covered. I have a basic plinth for her & it is needed to raise her above the plants & keep her off of the ground. The painting by Botticelli is one of my favorites -- that's why I bought this statue. When I see her each time I pull into my driveway -- she makes me smile. A touch of grace in a mostly ordinary "garden". Delightful.

She's lovely - but I was also really impressed with the service...
Shipping charges are a deal breaker for me. When I was filling out the online order form, I didn't realize that I had to provide some "code" in order to get free shipping. So at the end of the transaction when the item was totaled there appeared additional charges for taxes AND shipping! I left a comment that I was a bit irate and felt duped but that I was letting the order stand because I really wanted this statue. I couldn't believe that someone actually read the comment, called my house, left a message explaining what had happened and assured me that the shipping was indeed free. Wow. when does *that* happen? And it arrived quickly!
