Story Behind the Art: Making lotus panels from recycled teak has been done for generations in my family. Originally my elders made the panels as window screen guards to keep out snakes and small animals as many people had no glass. The designs were drawn from ancient memory and depict mainly the lotus bud or flower which is a sign of purity in the Buddhist sense. We only use recycled wood planks from old structures that are being replaced with more modern construction. All work is done in a communal setting as there are many stages done by hand; as such panels are not of a perfect size or thickness. This is not a regular job as we have to tend the fields also. It is a way to do something together and make extra currency
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 ordered two to hand side by side. One was very nice, dark with thick wood. The other was much more flimsy and the wood was much more distressed looking. They didn't match at all. I ordered a 3rd hoping that maybe I'd get lucky and get another of the nicer ones, but I got another one that was flimsy. I kept the one and sent the other two back and on the bright side the return process was very easy and the representative was great. Best return expierence ever for me, so at least I'm not afraid to order things and have to return them.
Love this piece! It is a very dark brown, almost black, as shown in the picture. Goes great with my dark wood furniture, and the detail is beautiful.. I bought two of these and hung them side by side on my bedroom wall as a hanging headboard. It looks amazing! Packaging was great. They both arrived in perfect condition and already had a bracket on the back ready for hanging. This was exactly what I was looking for, and I couldn't be happier!

Carving arrived with a huge crack. And, it looked as if someone had put packing tape directly on it and then peeled it off, thereby peeling off some of the stain. I think the piece was of good quality, but due to sub-standard packing, it may have broke during shipping. I've sent it back, and I have not yet requested a new one.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Carving was rustic but good.
