Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.
I knew the height of the piece before I purchased it, but I thought it would look good on a short corner wall in my bedroom. It now hangs with 5 more sculptures on my main entrance wall, my poor bedroom walls, once more left bare. For a person who loves to paint and the price, one could work wonders. Anyone who buys this item, especially on sale should not feel disappointed.
