Alice In Wonderland: Cheshire Cat Statue


Alice In Wonderland: Cheshire Cat Statue

“I wanted to let you know that my Cheshire Cat statue arrived yesterday (much faster than expected) and I could not be more pleased! It arrived on my doorstep well-padded and in perfect condition. I’ve owned the Alice and the White Rabbit statues for a number of years and I was concerned that the new Cheshire Cat might not have the same finish, but it’s a perfect match.

At Statue.com we are proud of our fine gallery of statuary, sculpture, fountains and many other beautiful pieces. However, we take the most pride in assuring our customers are one-hundred percent satisfied. Finding the right piece for our customer’s collection is the most important aspect of our work. We value communication and thrive on customer feedback. It lights up our world when a customer sends us pictures of their Statue.com pieces or write to let us know their purchases arrived safely.  We wanted to take this time to share some of our favorite customer responses.

“I have been ordering items online for almost as long as it has been offered. I have never encountered better customer service from any other company I have dealt with in person or online. The correspondence is amazingly fast and rather than just telling you “sorry we don’t have that” like I am used to hearing. Statue.com cares enough to make sure I get something else I will enjoy or will be enjoyed just as much as what I originally ordered. I can’t say loud enough how wonderful the customer service is. All of what they have to offer is beautifully made and a must for any collector. THANKS AGAIN!” J.M

Sleeping Kitty

“We received our order today and I just wanted to let all of you know how much we love it!! We lost our beloved cat and I searched and searched for the perfect statue for her memorial. I came across your site, saw the ‘sleeping kitty’ and it looked so much like her! We never dreamed that it would look so lifelike and that we would love it so much! Please pass on our appreciation to all involved in making this beautiful piece for us to enjoy!” J.J.

“I just received my sun sculpture. What can I say… I’m impressed. It’s a beautiful piece. I found your website via Google. Your on-line catalog is extensive. The packaging and packing insured a smooth ride from your door to my door. I’m impressed!” D.C.

“I am writing a note to let you know about the excellent service I had today when I called to ask some questions about products and delivery, since I am a new patron of the company. My questions were answered very graciously. Your customer service could not have been more professional, friendly, and helpful. It is rare to find such customer care, and it certainly makes an impression with a customer.” C.B.

Franklin D. Roosevelt Bust

“Hello – My Name is Harry, eBay user / I just left you feedback on the Lincoln, FDR & Washington busts I recently purchased. I don’t think I’ve ever written to a seller like this to tell them that there product is absolutely fantastic! For the cost, I never would have imagined the quality would be so outstanding, I was just totally floored! The pieces arrived very quickly and were packaged so that nothing could possible damage them, just wonderful all the way around. I hope people read my feedback and take it to heart. You do a superb job offering affordable, beautiful busts of these figures in history. I may make more room just to add more of these splendid pieces. I’ll also spread my pleasure with your company to all my friends who study and collect history. Send this message to the President of the company, he/she needs to know!!! A JOB WELL DONE BY ALL. With my very best wishes” H.M.

Here at Statue.com, we can reconstruct just about any statue you might choose to have repaired. A customer has entrusted us with a very sentimental statue that was accidentally, badly, broken and we will show the steps on its reparation. The first step is to assess the extent of the damage and try to evaluate what procedure to follow,

Seems like the Classical Statue fall away in the younger generation but if they have traveled to Europe they find a new found love of Art History. Working in the statuary business it always interest me in finding out something new in a Classical Historical sculpture such as this Faun playing Scabellum in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence Graeco-Roman statue. This striking version of the dancing satyrs, Pan, of Greek mythology has a completely human form. The Roman version of the dancing satyrs is called the dancing faun. In Greek mythology the dancing satyrs is known for his dancing, singing, laughter and chasing nymphs through the woods. Greek Mythology Satyrs the Dancing Satyrs was called Pan or Hylaeos, the forest god and guardian of the shepherds who worshipped Dionysus, the god of wine. Statues of the dancing satyrs range from a human form with the head and legs of a goat to a normal human form. The dancing satyrs, Pan, were the son of Hermes and Penelope, and born inArcady. The Dancing Satyrs was at home in the woods and enjoyed chasing the woodland nymphs. Pan would play the pipes and the nymphs would spend hours dancing and singing. Satyrs are always present at a Dionysus banquet or party, Dionysus was the Greek god of wine and ecstasy. The story of how Pan invented the pan pipes, which is similar to the pan flute, is an interesting mythological story. Pan was a joyful Satyr who loved dancing and playing on the shepherd’s pipe in the woods. One day Pan saw the nymph Syrinx and started after her. She ran until she came to a river. Syrinx turned into one of the reeds that lined the bank of the river. Pan could not recognize her so he grabbed a hand full of reeds hoping he could capture Syrinx, but he was unable to locate her. So Pan sat down beside the river and started tying the reeds together and soon he found that blowing over the ends made a beautiful sound, and it became known as the Pipes of Pan or a Seven Reed Shepherds Pipe. Faun is shown here playing the Scabellum which is a musical clapper that is operated by foot as depicted in the Greek and Roman Antiquities here with this Faun Sculpture. For years I have been selling this sculpture and knew what was under his foot! Now I know it is a musical Instrument. Not sure how it worked but it awesome to see I can find out something new from a Classic Sculpture I been selling for years. We at Statue.com have been provide Classical Sculptures since 1996 on the internet and it fun to find out new info on our statuary and Blog it!
