"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
Thoreau
Customer comment on 'Red Kite (Steel Bird of Prey life size garden sculptures)' by Ramsay Dick
Hi Peter, The Red Kite arrived today and WOW !! Its fantastic, I have spoken to the artist today to congratulated him on his work. Its in place in our garden and my family are soooooo thrilled with it, he certainly is a clever guy and very talented. I know we will get many more positive comments throughout the summer and can only say a very big thank you for the opportunity to own something that we would not think of having. Thanks once again X,
