how thick is this metal sun?
The only problem i can see for the future is the part that holds the Sun to the wall. It is a piece of metal with a V cut into it. It hangs on the wall without any problems, but we haven't had any strong winds or rain since I got it. I hope it doesn't blow away. Only time will tell. Besides that, it is a wonderful Art piece that has character. I would recommend this to my friends....

By assisting the independent artisans through the introduction of new designs and new market outlets they are helping lower unemployment in Haiti, the poorest country of the American hemisphere.
