Yes, but you have to appreciate the size of the job. Job 1-2.2 metres in height with a running length of about 17 metres. Job 2,- A complete garden room 2.2 metres in height with a run of 15 metres. This is still there which is a full landscape with much detail showing the Nile through from dawn to dusk. One large panel showing a Nubian woman fishing, one very large panel depicting two Nubian women picking fruit. One panel 3 metres high by 18 metres in length depicting a desert and oasis scene containing three temples. All walls were prepared, plus two coats of white oil paint, sketched out for approval then painted. All were very well detailed, not just quick jobs. I still have the temples, Nubian women and the Nile. They supplied all the materials. I thought then, as I do now, that it represented good value for money and that is what its all about, if your happy with the price, you pay it.

I thought your cracks had already received a once over? :lol: Sorry, you left yourself wide open for that one, figuratively speaking of course. :dv
