Be careful what you paint! The man's head you repainted looks very much like a bust of Michaelangelo's "David" that I purchased for $4 at a yard sale. When I looked it up online, it was worth about $40+ and that was over 5 years ago!

Thanks for the warning. I paid 99 cents for mine at Goodwill. He's only about 6 inches tall. While I have purchased things like that and resold them, on ebay, etc. This particular statue, I never intended to resell, but just to enjoy him. Many times I find cool things like that that might have a nick in them. With paint, the flaw is concealed and I'm tickled pink, er, bronze, er, maybe it's copper. HAHAHAHA

I really enjoyed your article as I'm a big fan of "garden art." Keep up the good work!
