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.
As a frequent customer of Overstock, I was surprised at the poor quality of this product. I would not recommend it. It is a very large and heavy screen and it was a pain in the neck to repackage and return. Not worth the hassle. Something this difficult to return should have been inspected before it was offered for sale and or shipped to a customer, so the customer would be happy with it and not have the headache of returning this piece of crap.
As soon as I opened the box my eyes started watering and my nose started itching---my wife experienced the same thing. We handled the panel and our hands were stained with something red and it was hard to get it off. I wonder if other customers have gotten the same reaction. I don't know if it's the wood or the stain that caused the reaction. We had to take it outside to get some relief--we'll wait several days before we bring it back inside. It wasn't a pleasant experience so we're trying to figure out several solutions--paint over the stain or wood--wash or scrub it with something. Very disappointed with the item.
We are very happy with this 4-panel screen. It arrived timely, in good condition, and serves as a room divider to hide my office furniture. The only reason I did not give this a 5-star rating is because the stain in several places does not completely cover the wood. It's an easy fix and one that I had seen in other reviews. The quality is outstanding. The panels are sturdy and well-made.
My screen just arrived. I was only able to cut the box open to see the carvings of the wood, because it is so heavy, I cannot move it on my own. I will have to wait for my husband to get home and help me take it completely out of the box, and move it to the room I want it in. From what I can see of this Indian Screen, the carving are beautiful. The only thing I do not like is the wood stain comes off in the hands. it does not matter for me anyway, because I intend to paint it another color. I am very satisfied otherwise, and I would recommend this screen top anyone looking for a room divider. I did a search on the internet and Ebay, and Overstock sells it for the lowest price. I am also very satisfied with the timely shipping. Wow, it did not even take a week to get here!
how can a product be 66 in H (high) and 80 in L (long) ?

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
