In one of the reviews, she says the hands are cut off in the 24 inch version. Is this true for all in this size or was that an anomaly?

Story Behind the Art:
This handcrafted item and many others come from a third-generation family-run workshop in mainland China. Their skills of hand-painting, hand-rubbed lacquering and hand-tooling have been passed down for many generations. We are proud to support them in their quest to keep their age-old techniques alive for future generations. Many of the artists are hired out of semi-retirement to work from home, training the next generation to become master craftsmen. These masters are highly respected in their craft and their culture which have survived through many Chinese dynasties and continue to produce valuable and desirable pieces for your home decor
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

I was so excited to receive this beautiful Thousand-Arm-Kwan-Kin. But this 24 inch item is not at all as pictured!!! Her hands are cut off!!! In the picture, all of her hands are intact and beautiful. The picture on Overstock definitely misrepresents the item. The item I ordered was the 24 inch. It seems the only other size is 72 inch in width which is too wide for my purposes but maybe in that version the arms aren't cut off. This would be a beautiful piece if it were sized correctly. I am very disappointed in Overstock.com for misrepresentation of this product.Read More
I believe it was defective because 8 of her hands were cut off at the wrist or forearm and it stunk. It would have been gorgeous if it arrived as shown. This was supposed to be a gift and I can't order it any larger. I think if you stick to the larger sizes the image would be complete. Hopefully yours won't smell if you order one.Read More
Kwan Yin is known in the West as the Goddess of Mercy, tho I encourage you to "Google/Wikipedia" Kwan Yin to get the full appreciation of this gentle, loving, being. I bought this blind for the serene sense I feel when I look at her ... and the soft subtle colors go perfectly in my bathroom! Soft and subtle is truly the way to describe both the colors and the expression on the face of this lovely work of art. Do know, the exterior face of the blind shows no colors, so is not a distraction from the outside of the house. I very much recommend this Kwan Yin, and the other one in the series, with the normal number of arms and holding a lotus... I have HER in my bedroom, and she, too, is lovely.Read More
