Neptune's Horses of the Sea Sculptural Wall Frieze
First time for everything,,,,
Before I start, I KNOW I could have returned this item, however, I needed a space filled & could not wait for a replacement. Also, this piece was one my wife & I put off getting for a couple years, but finally broke down & snatched it up. With that said, The problem with this piece is one I've NEVER had with Toscano before. It was this time where as a items description & photo DID NOT match the product when it arrived. I've purchased "hand-finished in quality designer resin" items before, and they all were the same tones. This piece, Neptune's Horses were nothing but pure army fatigue "green". (or at least one of the greens from the fatigues) Disappointed & pressed for time, again, I did not bother to return it, I simple headed to my local Home store & purchased a white gloss rich quality paint, and painted right over it. Would anyone else have gone through all of that, probably not , but, I'm now at least satisfied with the piece. As long as the room it's in gets the reaction I was looking for, I'm good. This was the only real miss with a order I've placed. But, I had to post this only to say, PLEASE Toscana, "IF" some of your items are in colors that don't match your description please add that to the description! I didn't think to take a photo of the awful green version that arrived, but' here it is after my minor tweaking!

Everyone loves the beauty of it.
I have shopped from your store for many years. This item has brought so much joy for me. Family and Friends admire it everytime they see it. I have a spotlight on it and it comes alive. Just wondeful.

We were so impressed with this item.We put it on the wall behind our baby grand piano.Everyone who visits our home comments on how beautiful it as and how much it adds to the décor.One would be hard pressed to find another product like this that is so dramatic and classic.This was a genuine find and a real bargain!

One of the most commented piece in my home, and I have many great finds from Toscano. I love pieces that are unusual, and totally different and this is it! A true standing ovation.

Eye catching wall sculpture.
Neptune's Horses is a very nice piece that attracts the eye immediately. I installed it above my fireplace mantle which works perfectly.
As an equine professional it annoys me that the horses have cloven hooves - horses do not. While the color is reminiscent of cement, it is not quite there and it can be quickly identified as resin. I am overwhelming tempted to hire an artist to paint the sculpture in light washed tones and fill in the cloven hooves.
I do however enjoy the sculpture very much.

The sculptor knew nothing about horses.
The sculptor did not know anything about horses. He gave them cloven hooves. How sad that the sculpture was ruined by this lack of attention to detail.

Great conversation piece
A HORSE HEAD WAS BROKEN WHEN I RECEIVED MY PRODUCT. CALLED COMPANY AND THEY REPLACED IT WITH NO QUESTIONS ASKED. WITHIN TWO WEEKS THEY SENT MY SCULPTURE. I LOVE IT! I WILL ORDER FROM TOSCANO AGAIN AND SHARED MY CATALOG WITH MY FRIENDS.
