This is a piece of art ! The delivery was well before time, the packaging was excellent. When I opened the packaging, I fell in love with this uruli at first sight. The elephants are each packed separately and need to be placed on the uruli. They are heavy enough and thus stay steadily at the edge of water. The uruli looks easy to clean and as the water level is shallow, I'm assuming it would not attract much dirt. It is not even as heavy as I had initially thought it to be. This product is well worth its price and I am glad I came across it on Amazon!
