Installation was straight forward but care must be taken when placing the hanging devices (nails or whatever) on the wall. Installation instructions did not specify the spacing between panels. I believe that we used 1 inch which looked fine.
This piece will make you do a triple take! I was a little skeptical buying it online because there were no product reviews, but I'm so glad that I took a chance on this! The metal art seems to absorb light and if you observe the piece from a certain angle it appears to glow! It was shipped promptly (thanks Overstock), in perfect condition and easy to hang (thanks to mi esposo :). The 4 panels contain burgundy, yellow, copper and magenta and blends quite nicely with my "fall themed" family room. It cost $** more at touchofclass.com, so make sure that you buy it from Overstock (it's always good to shop around ;). Very contemporary and quite stunning!
This painting has bright and vibrant colors and coordinates perfectly with my living room. I love the way the metal sort of adds another dimension to the piece. However, it is quite a challenge to hang if you are inexperienced and/or do not have the right tools because the four panels have to line up perfectly. My only complaint about this piece is that the painted portion of the last panel on the right, even when the panels line up perfectly, does not flow. Look closely at the image and decide if you could live with the flaw before purchasing so that you are not disappointed.

I am very happy with the art itself - it is beautiful! But I was disappointed that it did not come with instructions on how to hang the pieces on the wall. They were very difficult to hang and nearly impossible to get level and spaced evenly... some tips would have been appreciated!

The description calls this "metal wall art", but the image appears to be a painting on metal and a depth of 2.5". The package arrived and was damage free, but when we opened it, it wasn't exactly what we expected. There were 4 pieces of essentially sheet metal. The actual depth of the pieces are a few millimeters. You then have to fold back pieces of metal at the top and bottom to create the areas to hang it from. The hanging mechanism itself is 2.5" deep. So the flat pieces of sheet metal are pushed away from the wall by the 2.5" metal folded hanger.As for the image itself, the metal pieces have been polished in a way that it reflects light in a sort of starburst pattern from the center of the tree. Then an image was simply printed on top of the metal. There isn't any sort of painting or original artwork to this piece other than the polishing of the metal and fixing the print to the metal. WARNING: This looks pretty crappy and is completely blinding if hung on a wall with direct sunlight. Make sure you're intending to hang it where it only gets indirect light from the sun.It's a pretty neat an original piece once it's hung up and we will be keeping it. You can't find anything like this anywhere else. I just wish this was a painting and not simply "art" created by computer.

Unfortunately we did not like this art. when seen on natural light in a dining room or living room it appeared to us very dark In th evening when light illuminates in the same described rooms, all you see is one bright metal in color gold .and unable to make out the art . We tried a natural spot light from different angles and position to highlight the artist's design but once again when light is on the picture one large reflections in gold appears. This comments are not to disrespect the artist. . we bought this metal art based on the web professional photography but unable to achieve the same . We have returned this product.

This painting is absolutely amazing and worth every penny. I knew as soon as I saw it online that I wanted it but pondered the cost. All I can say is WOW! The color is true to the picture and it looks even more beautiful once it is mounted on a wall. I have received so many compliments. I would definately, definately recommend this piece of art.
I just received this piece of art. The colors are exquisite. Now I can't decide where I'm going to hang it. The packaging was done to prevent movement or and scratching during delivery.

When I opened the package, I was happy to see that it had been packaged wonderfully and had no damage. When I took it out to view it... I was surprized at the "quality" of the item... I love it...I still need to decide where to put it.. I was going to place it in the living room... but it would be equally beautiful in my bedroom... Time will tell... worth the money... a beautiful work of art!
This piece was even more beautiful in person than in the photo. The instructions on how to mount the pieces were easy to understand. It was pretty simple to align on the wall. Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase. It is a nice focal point in my newly painted livingroom and a great addition for the price. I look forward to enjoying it for years to come.
