Each painting comes with two metal brackets on the back, all flat. I am unsure how they are supposed to be bent to be put on the wall. How many inches off the wall is the metal art supposed to be?
Eye catching, gorgeous colors, dramatic and good price for such a large piece...

This piece looks very similar to the picture but is dark if not brightly lit. As other reviewers have said, it is very difficult to hang and line up straight, but worth the time to get it right. Once I put it up, I realized it needed bright lighting. During the day it gets great light from my patio doors but at night it was a different story. Any bright sources from in the room reflected in the art and made a blinding glare of the fixture in the panels that made it hard to see the art. I am a lighting professional so I tried many different ways to light it: from above, the side, and below, and quickly realized that from the way it was manufactured, the metal required lighting from below to really make the art glow or a bright soft directional light, but as I said that made a glare. Now lighting something from underneath, softly and out front of the 2 inch depth would have looked horrible since the art floats without a frame. It would have also taken up too much room in my small dining area. So I quickly figured out that if you hang them angled (I bent the metal hangers on top to the 2 inch hanging depth but actually folded the bottom metal under and flat and into the back of each panel so that the bottom of the art hung only a 1/4" away from the wall) I was able to use my soft bright chandelier that is already in the same room to brightly light the piece without getting the reflection from the fixture that was blinding out the ability to see the picture in the art clearly when the panels were hung flat 2" from the wall. No one can even tell they aren't flat to the wall until I tell them, and the effect is stunning. All the glimmers and reflections move as you walk into different parts of the room and living room, and I didn't need to hang any special lights or worry that when my dining room chandelier and living room lights were on, that all you would see are the reflections of the lights in the panels. Because they angle down, there are no reflections of the fixtures only of the light the fixtures emit. I would worry that if you have only recessed lighting, that you will never get the great reflection effect in the panels, so think about the lighting in your room before you purchase. Overall, I now love piece (especially because I got it on sale and used O rewards for a further discount). It is just painted metal panels that were etched to give the reflections, but the colors are vivid and in a brightly lit room, it is stunning :) I hope this helps some of you decide whether this is a good purchase for you and how to hang it. Trust me, hang them on a tilt downwards for best effect or have a bright directional but soft under light. Top lighting did not give the same glow to the etchings in the panels.Read More
This is still a nice work of art, but its way darker then the photo. I put this on a wall that does not have much natural light and you have got to be standing in front of it to see the picture. If the colors had been like the picture it would have looked great instead of ok.Read More

Striking artwork, easy to hang. (For best results, line the panels up on the floor and lay a long piece of string across the top. Use a marker to mark where the nails should go on the string, then stretch the string across the wall to guide your nail placement.) Wish the colors were a tad brighter, but still very pleased with it.Read More
The painting once hung (outside) displays an almost mystical quality. Especially with the morning sun shining on it.Read More
