My moms into gnomes this year so I definitely had to get this. The gnome head is quite large. The material is soft and plush. It has a very nice thick beard. I love the design. It looks exactly as it does on here as it does in person. The colors are very vibrant and go well together. Overall I'm happy with this gnome and will be happy to display it in my home. (I'm a poet! Lol) My only fear is the cat will like it too and it will disappear when she makes it a toy.
