The image doesn't show how drastically this copper is hammered. Its like an animal print with 1/2' spots. Other than that it is a big beautiful sink heavy and sturdy feeling. It would look great in the right kitchen (not mine), but you should know it will utterly dominate as the focal point with its size, apron, and funky hammering, The reason I wouldn't recommend it to a friend is that I don't personally know anyone who I think would like it. I'm irritated that overstock is charging me a fee to return it when they didn't provide an adequate image of it.
