I really love the look of this very unique, fun piece. The only reason I did not give five stars across the board is because it isn't as heavy as I expected based on another review. It is cast aluminum which naturally suggests it will not be very heavy but I suppose I expected more weight. With that said, it is still a very nice, well made, fun conversation piece. All in all, I like it so much that I decided to keep it and not gift it as I originally planned. I would have ordered another one, but looks like they are sold out. I definately recommend this, just don't be surpised by the light weight material.
