Our statues come from many places, but not from China. (For religious, political and economic reasons, we do our best not to carry any products made in Communist China). We are, therefore, more limited than some of our competition. Our statues tend to be made in the US, Italy, other European countries, and in various countries of South America. Their composition is typically either plaster or resin and this will be noted in each product description. Resin statues are a bit heavier, more solid, and do not chip as easily as plaster. They typically cost a bit more.
