Story Behind the Art:
'From the time I was a boy, I was attracted to art,' recalls Alejandro de Esesarte. 'When I was 20, I became an ecologist and defender of nature, and this is when I began to create animals in metal. My technique is similar to cutout metal, but more rudimentary. From this, I became inspired and started working in metal for its versatility. Today I have a workshop, a cockatoo named Coco and a cactus collection. Those are all the tools I need to continue working.'

Nice piece but a little too dark for what I was looking for. I kept it though and used it elsewhere.Read More
Received lots of compliments on thus piece,stands out ,and is a topic of conversationRead More
The pictures do not do this piece justice, it is more beautiful in person. I was delighted by the craftsmanship and surprised by the size of it as it was a bit larger than I expected also. You can play around with the tendrils of hair to give it just the right three dimensionality you want. Over all this is a wonderfully expressive piece of art very well crafted!!Read More
This piece is stunning. The colors are accurate and the material is solid. I was thrilled with the look and quality. If you are looking for something beautiful and dramatic you have found it.Read More
This is a nice piece of art. Bought it for my living room /dining room. Ended up it did not look appealing indoors with my modern decor. I put the figure in the yard up high on a lattice fence. It looks awesome. Not sure if it will hold up in the outdoors. Time will tell. I purchased this piece with overstock credits. Not sure if I would pay the price without my points.Read More
I just received my sculpture this afternoon, and when I unwrapped her I gasped!! SHE IS BEAUTIFUL! I saw how pretty the picture was on the web site, but let me tell you, she is SO MUCH MORE AMAZING in person! I LOVE HER! I have her hanging above my fireplace (which is a light travertine stone) and let me just say, you can't stop looking at her! GREAT CRAFTSMANSHIP! SUPER DETAILED! You will not be disappointed. I agree with other reviewer she deserves 10 stars! Thank you Overstock.com - Pass along our compliments to the creator.Read More
When I was web shopping for decorating items, this unique and gorgeous work of art caught my eye and I could not order her fast enough. She hangs in my entryway and every person who comes through the front door comments how unusual and beautiful she is. I absolutely love her and am so glad I ordered her as quickly as I did. She really deserves 10 stars!Read More
This metal sculpture is even more beautiful than the picture can show. Well made with a dreamy character--I put her in a prominent place in my foyer and will never tire of her!Read More
I love this piece. She is perfect as a focal point in any room. The colors are soft and the multi dimensionality gives her depth and movement. I am so glad I took the chance on this piece. I love it!!Read More
I just received this wall art, and I can't believe how wonderful it looks hanging on the wall. Its larger than I expected, (I didn't pay attention to the dimensions; it's a good thing it wasn't 6ft x 6ft) which isn't a bad thing. I really love this!! You will not regret buying this. I'm going to buy something similar (I saw something with a sun) to hang on the other side of a wall unit. If you're on the verge...go for it! You'll be happy you did.Read More

Hello emerson2, This piece is so beautiful! This wall art is designed for indoor or sheltered outdoor use only. I hope this information helps. Thanks for shopping with us.
I don't see why not, except that it may rust overtime and lose some of its wonderful color.
