I ordered this for my sister who loves birds. The picture 0f the item in the catalog and on line made the birds look light in color and brighter than they appeared when I received it. Though a fun idea and well executed, the birds are so dark you can barely even see their eyes. It looks as if it has been re-scanned so many times it is washed out and under-exposed. It makes me want to take it apart and color it in with colored pencils. Very disappointed.

Came quickly and intact. Rustic and delicate. Great accent picture.
My husband ordered one of these shadow boxes and I, unaware of his purchase, also ordered one. However, the two of them together (hung side-by-side, one after another) are great. There is a flow and continuity to the flying birds that wouldn't be seen with just one. If I had the money, I might buy more to string along the top of the wall. Both of the shadowboxes arrived in good shape; we didn't have the problems that the other reviewer had.
This is to me a beautiful and unique decorative piece showing the stages of flight of a bird as if captured with stop-action photography. Some of the wings are 3D, made of reinforced paper. The wood is distressed and looks good on a shelf or the wall. The problem I had (and why no 5 stars) is that twice, the item arrived broken. It was well-wrapped but a long splinter of wood was hanging down from inside the frame, touching one of the wings...same break each time, and too obvious to overlook. Customer service was very accommodating and the 3rd time was a charm. I am glad I didn't give up on it, since I think it is special, and reasonably priced as well.
