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....

The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
