Story Behind the Art: These screens are hand-carved from Mango wood, which is a sustainably grown material. They are carved by hand from the most recent generation of expert carvers in the Thar Desert region of north west India. They are finished with a white wash, then a burning process that gives them a rustic aged feel, they are finished with a wax process. Handicrafts have transformed this region of India from a military economy to that of an export economy, providing handmade furniture all around the globe.
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.

This is exactly what I hoped for. It is wider than a shoji screen I have, which only has 3 panels. This has 4 panels. so it can be unfolded into a very stable room dividing screen. I have kids and pets, and my shoji screen was just too delicate. This is heavy and durable. I went with a South Asian influenced decor for my living room, and this piece really sets the mood for the whole room. It is so solid- like an exotic architectural detail. I LOVE IT! The light comes through, showing off the intricate hand-carved details.
Now the bad news: Not meticulously carved, like many things handmade in India. The carvers, I am sure, rush to crank out as many pieces as they can, so the finer details suffer a bit, but I doubt that most people would even notice. It also arrived very dirty- I had to clean it first with the vacuum cleaner, then with a damp rag, which it stained dark brown. It smelled of diesel fuel, which may actually be used as an insect deterrent on the wood in India, as it is in many developing countries (lead?). That said, I really do love this, and in spite of the minuses, would buy it over and over again. I also like the fact that I am helping contribute to development in India with this, as it is handmade. India's manufacturing is still labor-intensive, so some guy was able to feed his family by me buying this..
excellent quality. you will have to wipe it a couple of times. i think that as soon as it was stained they put it in the plastic and then shipped it. but overall, this is an excellent piece. i am using it as a headboard. oh yeah, each panel is 22" wide, so the whole piece is 88" wide NOT 80" WIDE.
I use this screen to separate my office from my living room and it works great. No more showing off my office clutter to every visitor! :)
The screen arrived with a small part of one of the panels broken but it was easily glued back in place and completely unnoticeable. Understandable when shipping an item this size. It was also a bit dusty, but once you have wiped it down and set it up, you'll fall in love with the details.
I was excited to receive this screen. The box was very heavy because the screen is solid wood. The carvings are beautiful and the length is perfect; however, the stain rubs off on your hands anytime you touch the screen and it has quite a few loose pieces of wood. Also, the screen is not hinged properly, making it uneven to the floor. I was disappointed in this product. The only improvement I could make to it was to buy my own wood stain and stain all four panels. It still looks slightly lop-sided, but that only becomes evident after you stare at it awhile.
Excellent quality , great value. I read previous reviews and as soon as I got the item I cleaned it with a damp cloth and had no unpleasant odors or any issue with it.
Truly an authentic work of art. Love it.
Horrible workmanship, it would have been a perfect piece if the time was taken to make sure the paint was not missing on some of the sections. It is somewhat flimsy for the price, it is very ornate which is the only plus
Seriously. Listen to the other reviews. Don't even bring this thing in your house until you hose it for an hour. That's what I did. It will stain your hands with a brown/orange dye but as you hose it it will produce crazy purple water. So much purple came off this thing that I felt badly about sending the water down the storm drain. After hosing, I let it air dry for 5 days. It's really, really pretty once you do all this prep work. It's exactly what we needed. I will say that it leans a bit. I'm wondering if it's because I have it on carpet, but I plan to put a wedge under a couple of the legs to help. Really pretty! Just sort of a pain to prep.
This is a beautiful screen and has detailed wood carving but it is covered with a dust. I opened the box outside and the wind was blowing. It blew this red dust, which the screen was covered with, all over my outdoor furniture and stained them. I can't imagine if I had opened the box inside. When water hits that dust it turns bright red and stains everything. Be care of the dust that covers the screen.

What is the hieght and width?sandradodd on Feb 29, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This item is 66 inches from top to bottom; 80 inches long from left to right when it is flat, around 76 when it is as pictured; the one inch width is referring to the thickness of the wood itself. That is the width when it is flat.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 1, 2012
