Comments about Product: I ordered the pair of cranes to accent my pondless waterfall feature. These are just what I wanted. Light weight, but tall enough to look natural. The only downside is no anchors were provided. I am going to need to work out a method to keep them from getting blown over. So until I get good weather and the supplies they are "living" in my guest bedroom. I have no way of knowing how well they will weather, but they are sturdy and were well packaged. The anchoring system might be difficult since I don't want to ruin the look of their feet in the process.
Comments about Product: Would like to see a better, more realistic "aged" patina. Needs to have optional posts to attach and secure 'in the ground' - However, the birds are a perfect size for sculptures in outdoor gardens, well made and priced right.
