This metal piece has "wow" factor. It is very striking, elegant and rich looking. The color is subtly copper with varying shades of brown/bronze. I was afraid it might be a fiery orange sun but it was NOT. The asymmetrical form adds interest and the raised bronze center with metal swirls gives a sense of depth. Arrived very quickly and in excellent shape. Easy to hang. Extremely happy I purchased this to go above the fireplace in my living room!
