the color is much more consistent than how it looks in the photo - green all over (not yellowish drool parts taking away from the design). This is fairly heavy but the mouth holes are prefect for moving it around. I keep it indoors it looks so good. The item seems well made it was the only household/furniture item (of about 4) I ordered in a 2 week period from overstock that actually made it without being cracked or damaged. I like it so much, I'm getting another matching stool.
