Received today, 12/22/14, figurine is larger than I imagined. When I took it out of the box, I immediately noticed how sloppy the painting was around the "Let Heaven and Nature Sing". Yellow paint sloppily on the pinecone. Poor quality control. Very disappointed, will not keep!
The figurine of the cardinal has a nice face from all sides. This is something I check when I purchase things that have faces. The figurine is "happy," if I can describe it like that. I'm glad I got it, and glad to give it as a gift.
As always when looking at sizing in metric I over-estimate the size of things. The cardinals are smaller than I expected. But very pretty and lots of detail. They make a perfect accompaniment to the "Let Heaven and Nature Sing" greeting cards I order. Well pleased.
