I usually do not write reviews. But I was shocked to not see an overall rating of 4 1/2 or 5 stars for this. I have to disagree with the gentleman who wrote "cheap and ugly." This is an awesome piece. It does have the weathered look, but it is not over done. We put it against a gray wall (in fact, in the middle of a large wall). At first we wondered if the painting was too small for the area. But after a couple of days we realized it was perfect. The picture is super solid material. Everyone who comes in our home notices it and walks up and starts looking at the details. It is a really cool piece. It is a talking point. It looks like a quality piece also. If in doubt, buy this. Deseret Book has an awesome return policy. Get it and try it out. You'll keep it.
I had viewed this piece in stores and really liked it, so when it went on sale I quickly purchased one. What was delivered was not what I expected. I'm not certain what it is printed on, but it isn't a quality paper or canvas, it looks like it was digitally printed on hardboard. The print quality appears poor, giving the look of a very cheaply printed poster that has been placed in a plastic frame. Certainly not worth the $75 sale price, and I question whether this is the same product I saw in the store, or a much cheaper version whose inferior quality made it impossible to sell at the regular price.
I love this artwork! It hangs over my couch and reminds me and my family of our pioneer heritage.
