A lot more purple than appears. Was expecting shades of browns and slate blues which is the colors of the room it is to go in. It's a decently purple sheen around and through the horse. I had to change the light bulbs in my overhead lighting from warm to daylight. That washed out the purple to give me the colors I wanted. The photo I've added is in the warm light. Pleased with packaging and overall quality. Came with hangers attached, but I unscrewed them and hung with 3 Command velcro stickies.
