Picture does not do it justice. It's the perfect light size for my placement - hallway to bedrooms, may be small if you put it in a big room. The other reason the hallway is a good place is that the blue glass obscures the light so that it doesn't give off a lot of light even with the max wattage bulbs. Colors are beautiful...I especially like the eyes because when the light is on they are a glowing orane-red. I love it.
