I have collected gargoyles for several years, and I'm very pleased I found this guy. Socrates' pose is so unique, and his look so coy, that I had to give him a home on my shelf. He really needs about a 2'x2'x2' place (his wings are broad, his pretty tall for reasonably-priced gargoyle statuary, and is deep because of his extended leg and his wings). I put him at about eye height so people who walk by can see his enigmatic expression. He comes in two pieces (you have to put his wings on) but it truly took less than one second to put him together. In the photo, he seems to be greyer, but my guy has a touch of brown.
This gargoyle was perfect for our backyard. Thank you very much it will be vary enjoyable for years to come.
we just love socrates,we set him atop of an arbor, looking over our sitting area and garden, my 2yr g/daughter just loves him, so real like, great craftmanship, we love toscano products,we hope our toscano art will be handed down generational.
