Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.
This was my first tree sculpture. I purchased this so my grandchildren could look for many of my "tree creatures" on a scavenger hunt in the woods. I liked it so well that I have purchased many more tree sculptures . I now have about 25-30 out in the woods by my pond. I like the "real life" appearance of this sculpture. I would like it even more If it were a little bigger. It definitely stands out and has accomplished everything I wanted it to do.
