      As soon as I saw this sculpture I thought of my son and his family. He has a lovely wife and two beautiful children. Addison, 7 years old and Jake, 4 years old always reach up to hold hands with their parents. They have a wonderful bond and you can see it when they're together. This sculpture depicted their relationship so well. I gave it to my son for Father's Day.

      I bought this as a Christmas gift for my mother. I LOVE it!!! The coloring is of course slightly different than the image due to the stone... but I am very satisfied with the product. The sculpture/stone is very heavy.

      this piece is beautiful. Slightly different than shown but to be expected as each piece is handmade. Lovely gift idea but kept mine as a reminder of our own family of four!

      Great piece of art for my side table. The coloring does vary because the picture shows a brownish head on one of the kids and mine is the color of the rest of the picture. Recommend

      Very pretty. Giving it a 4 star only because it broke to easily; wish it was a little stronger. It fell off the table and broke in a million pieces - not repairable. Keep somewhere safe, away from kids.
