  • CHEAP - Not at ALL as pictured. Returned it.
    Verified Purchase

    Wow...I was really disappointed with this purchase. Not recommended at all. The quality of this statue was VERY poor and did not look at all like the one pictured on Overstock. It was poorly constructed, the wood was cheap and the "varnish" looked like cheap black shoe polish (and wasn't even applied evenly - there were patches of cheap wood showing through all over!) Returned it.

  • Disappointing
    Verified Purchase

    I loved the picture of this Sankofa Bird Statue and I really expected to like it. However, it did not meet my expectations. The workmanship was poor, the stain was sloppily applied, and the varnish felt sticky and smelled bad. Some of the black stain came off on my hands! I expected the carving to be a bit primitive due to being hand-crafted, but it was poorly finished. I am returning it.
