As the sculpture is going to become a permanent fixture in your life, you need to be sure you are happy with it . In addition , buying sight unseen on the internet is not an easy undertaking. This is especially true of sculpture which has the 3rd dimension.
On this basis you may return the sculpture for a full refund after 7 days, provided you pay for the return shipping with the sculpture in the original container.
If you are in Cape Town and would like to view the work, please contact me and I will show it to you in my gallery.

How to look after your sculpture
The materials used are detailed in the description of the work. Lacqured paint means that I am using auto lacquer paint which has been sprayed onto the surface, The works are sandblasted, to raw steel, primed with an etch primer and then a basecoat of colour is applied ( 3 coats , which gives the correct colour density). A clear satin or gloss clearcoat is then applied as the final coat.
The reason I mention this is that if the sculpture gets damaged it can easily be repainted by reputable, paintshop with the above information kept in mind.
Sculptures which have high finishes will need to be dusted down from time to time, and if any stubborn marks appear, especially on white surfaces ( insects) they can be removed by using a fine autoburnishng compound.
