West Tower Owl Wall Sculpture
This owl is very nice looking. I think it looks best on a wall that has some color to it.

Great quality, better than the photo!
I got this owl at the warehouse sale in Illinois. I had seen it online and was planning to buy it-but it wasn't until I had seen him in person that I fell in love. The owl is quite sturdy, well made. Hangs on the wall with ease and is an appropriate size to hang photos around or not have hanging himself as a centerpiece. I will definitely have him as a christmas decoration-although I like him so much that I may keep him up all year round.

The owl is realistic in it's coloring and a great size.
The owl is realistic in it's coloring and so pretty. It is a good size to chase away the pesty squirrels. It is easy to hang. I decided to put it on my screened porch and it startles the squirrels everytime they get on my screens. It is worth every penny I spent on it. Wish it was a motion detecter so it could hoot at the squirrels also. I am pleased with my purchase.

This product has great features
The design of the owl is crafted excellent, but the overall appearance is substandard for a quality merchandizer like Toscano. The price was very good when I purchased it. This was a birthday gift to a very long time friend and I was so disappointed when it was unwrapped. Thank goodness he was gracious and said: "Love it.....the thought was...ok". How would you feel at this comment being made to you if you were me?

LIME GREEN SHADING!!!!!!!!
I thought this item was fantastic except for the LIME GREEN shading. It totally destroyed the effect.I think that Free return postage should be included when this is sent out since the image in the catalogue and online is totlly deceptive. Since I liked the product so much I took a chance and used acetone to remove the Shading and while it wasn't completely cleaned off at least it was a bit better, but one would have to be careful not to remove the wing tip paint. I was totally disappointed with the end results. It's a shame that this product is destroyed in such a way.

LIME GREEN SHADING !!!!!!!!
If the item were exactly as pictured it would have been a fantastic value. The sculture is very realistic and attractic, but picture a handsome white sculptured snow owl that a child who had eaten lime sherbert (not a subtle green, but bright Lime green) and had it all over his hands got a hold of and mauled!!! I can't imagine why they would allow some amateur artist to destroy this. I decided to chance it and used acetone on a brush to tone the green down, but it also removed some of the black markings on the wings. It Looks all right, but would have been so much better if the Lime Green "frosting" had not been applied in the first place.

Overall -very good
There is a bit of green on the owl which I think is not true-to-life but where it is hung, it looks very life-like. We had to add a small nail to get it balanced. I do not know how easy maintenance will be...the owl was just hung.

Image in catalog horribly misleading
By the image in the Toscano catalog I assumed I was buying a statue of a white owl only to find out after I had given it as a gift that it had garish stripes of green throughout the body. Had the image been accurate I never would have purchased this item,much less given it as a gift. Maybe someone wants a green and white owl - it should be depicted as such.
