Description

Difficult to spell but easy to admire, Vergogna Phryne is a delightful statue that takes its inspiration from a Jean-Leon Gerome painting depicting a real life event.

The subject, whose real name was Mnēsarétē, was charged with blasphemy in ancient Greece but was acquitted after it was decided that someone so beautiful could not possibly commit such an offence.

We think that you would heartily agree with that judgement, since the craftsmanship on show has superbly replicated her lovely form and serene poise that can easily be appreciated through the slender robes that drape her figure.

Every charming detail is portrayed by the smoothly finished crushed marble and top quality resin that resembles the finest grained alabaster.

A Very Pleasant Experience

I was asked in advance when I would like to receive the delivery of my Vergogna Pryne statue and was informed of the hour in which I would receive it. The delivery driver informed me when he was in the area and told me of his estimated delivery time. The statue was duly delivered and transported by the driver to the desired location to the rear of my house. The item is superb, the delivery driver was efficient but unhurried and friendly.

I have constructed the terrace for two statues

The Vergogna certainly looks very well on the terrace, much better than the birdbath she replaced, and of course with the attention to detail, much better than the more expensive stone statues. And this was not too heavy to handle. I am most pleased with the statue, and without a doubt before too long she will be getting a companion!

Better than expected!

It was around 35 years ago that I built my rather large house with a terrace for a couple of statues, but alas they were very expensive and stone, and to my mind not very good, so the terrace remained with a few plants pots and a bird bath. I then discovered marble resin statues, that I though had much more detail and were certainly a lot less expensive, and so Vergogna Pryne was ordered. Living somewhat in the wilds on unmade road the vehicle they first used was too big, but not deterred the company delivered in a smaller one, and took right up to the terrace. I was somewhat concerned about how it would be packed, but the statue was firmly ensconced on a pallet and in a wood and plastic box, with the actual statue securely fastened inside - I need not have worried. Weighing very much less than stone, once taken our of the box, it was very easy to handle by three people, and really could have been by two, and put into place. Vergogna looks very well indeed, the detail is superb, but I think the highest compliment is that I fully intend to purchase another similar statue for the other side of my terrace. Very recommended indeed. Tom

Exactly what I wanted!

The product looks the part and should compliment my garden feature very well. If it stands up to the weather conditions and lasts a number of years I will remain very pleased.

Excellent product. Delivery very flexible changed on a late request.

Only having seen a picture I was unsure of the quality but pleased with the detail and finish. They wanted to deliver on the Friday and I initaly said yes but when it proved inconvenient they changed without question despite it being on the lorry

Really great Quality. Extremely authentic looking pieces

Bought one of these which was to be used within a garden feature and was dubious of what the quality would be like at the price but I need not have worried. When it arrived I was very pleased. So much so that I ordered 2 more from the range. I would note that in my opinion, the optional pedestal is best suited to the statues which have an appropriate shaped base. The pedestal is quite large and creates a very imposing set. I inquired as to whether they could make a delivery in France.With some initial hesitation the order including delivery was quoted, accepted and placed. Concerns over delivery to France which had just a small window of opportunity were were unfounded. Delivery went as clockwork. Email confirmation, Direct contact from the courier (English speaking) with delivery confirmed as between 9 am and 1 pm. Arrived 10 am. Big thanks to all involved.
