Nice piece overall, but not exactly like the sales photo.
Based on the sales photo, I was expecting Marcellus to have a bright, uniform, off-white finish. Instead, the finish is streaky and, in some areas, blotchy. I received confirmation that it's normal for this statue, as it is meant to replicate an unpolished marble-like finish. Still, I would have preferred a smooth, evenly-colored finish. You can see what I mean in the pictures I uploaded.
If you are a perfectionist, beware that some of the proportions are not correct. I find this version of Marcellus' thumbs and index fingers abnormally long, while other parts are disproportionately small.
That being said, though, this is a very handsome statue. For me, it's a keeper.

Not as tall as I thought
I bought it as a gift for my wife, but it was not as big and heavy as I was hoping. It sits by the chimney right now in full view for everyone to enjoy. I just wish you sold more erotic nudes (males and females) close to six feet tall. Then we would be order more often.

A beautiful adonis

Az sun can be an issue
Purchased Marcellus about 8 years ago, he stands next to the pool. He now needs a paint job. Over the years a support rod pushed through at his wrist, looks likr a compound fracture so I grinded it off. He also developed rust spot on his leg. Detailed, right down to the toe nails, but he comes with a very small winky, smaller than his thumb. The paint has oxidized, needs a repaint. All in all he has held up very well in the AZ sun.

Perfect product for garden
When Macellus arrived, I was thrilled. I knew exactly where I was going to place him in my garden. He now stands proudly, overlooking the deep end of my kidney shaped pool, surrounded by Spirea shrubs and under a Japanese yellow plum tree.

met my expectations
overall this is a very attractive and affordable classic sculpture. it arrived well packed in an exepdient manner and with no damage. ...very pleased with it thus far. i only knocked it a point on design and expectations because it is a tad more grey whereas online it appears more white. quality is spot on though.
