I love this guy. The expression on his face makes me smile every time I look at him. He landed in my front room with a couple other Uncommon Goods yard decorations, but for whatever reason every one of them are a great fit. If/when they ever make it to the yard they'll still look fabulous!

            This item was purchased as a gift for my mom, who can use as much positive energy as is available. She loves to garden, and Jizo is a perfect compliment to the plants and decor in her front yard. The statue is small, but attractive. You can't help but smile when you see this little guy.

                      The statue was exactly as it appeared in the picture. You can't help but smile each time you look at it. Not only is it a beautiful piece of art, it's extremely sturdy as well.
