"Why did you choose this product?"
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....

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.Read More
