I bought it for a friend for his birthday and he really liked it. However, it did not look at all like the picture. I thought it would look more like the original "Thinker Version," only a wood carved edition. However, it looks more like the side angel of "The Thinker." I do beleive that it is good workmanship. I do agree with another review that it doesn't look anything like the picture and in that respect, I was disappointed.
