Story behind the item:
Veena Boonmee has been using Buddhism to express her artistic talents for seven years. She has a small workshop in Northern Thailand, where she and a group of fellow artisans carve a variety of Buddha faces. Each Buddha face is precisely hand carved over a month period on a very thick piece of acacia wood, leaving no detail uncovered. The purchase of this product will help artisans provide food and shelter to their communities as well as generate money to put their children through school.
The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design, weight, and sizing. Subtle variations will occur from piece to piece, adding to its unique qualities. Measurements may vary slightly.

Great piece if you are trying to add that Zen look to your place. Took a while for the wood/stain smell to go away but overall I give it two thumbs up! Be aware that you will have to hang each panel from a metal piece attached to the top of the wood which is visible. Didn't bother me but some people might not like that set up. I'm sure your local hardware store can supply you with plenty of alternate hanging suggestions.
I love the "tone" of this piece and was very pleased to get it. Note: THERE ARE ACTUALLY 23.75" W. X 36" H, which is what I was hoping for (seemed to make sense given the ratio/size of the smaller version). Mine also had quite a lot of mold covering (all 3 of) the panels. I would have freaked if I hadn't read about this in a prior review (I am fatideous about cleanliness). However, I just wiped them with mild soap and water, let them dry...and they are FINE. Only reason I didn't give this item a better rating is that you do have to work to get it "just right". The hanging brackets show at the top of each panel and cheap looking. I strongly recommend an alternative mounting method and to clean panels prior to display. Also, mine came with uneven lines, top and bottom of each panel. Personally I prefer "not too perfect" (ie. rustic), but you may need to plane off/trim and re-stain to get straight edges. Overall, I think this is a great deal for a nice piece of "art". Recommended.
Ordered this for a living room piece and really like it.. It makes the room feel more like a spa than a formal, boring traditional living room. Looks really great with a small light shining up on it. It does smell like leather (although there is none) and wood and I have had it for several weeks. If you are close you can smell it otherwise, its not noticeable. It is much more 'rustic' than the picture shows but I like it better that way. As another reviewer wrote, the head does face the other way. I would purchase again. And I did not find it difficult to hang or match up the three panels at all.
I was very excited when this arrived! I have been eying this piece for a couple of years now, trying to decide between the brown and gold, the full size or the large. Each time I made a decision it would sell out and I would have to wait for a hopeful restock! Overstock has a good system in place for restock notifications. It is just that I think this piece is hard to come by at this price. Once the restock sold out within the hour of my notification. I ordered this piece in the large 36" dark wood and it matches perfectly with the reclaimed teak furniture in the room. Each piece has little subtleties that make it differ from one to the next, definitely a hand carved piece of hardwood. This one actually faces in the opposite direction from the one you see listed. It arrived well packaged however there was a bit of panic upon opening due to quite a lot of mold covering one of the panels. Thankfully the piece is sealed so the mold was completely removed with a cloth and was not actually growing in the wood. It appears the mold was due only to the inner wrapping being allowed to get wet and remain damp before packaging for shipping. Other sites have this Veena Boonmee design for twice this price in the Acacia wood. The only downside is that the hanging brackets are above each panel and are clearly visible. Something that is easily changed. All in all I am happy with this purchase and it was worth the wait. The piece is beautiful. If you are mulling this one over don't wait too long .
I love my buddha! Although the plates didnt match perfect, it still looks beautiful. You have to hang the plates about a cm apart from eachother to give the effect that lines match each other. One thing i was not happy about was the nose. I feel that the buddha's nose is too sharp and sticks out too much. It looks very different from the photo shown in the review. Oh well, my friends and i have laughed about it and say it gives it "character" .
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good! HARD wood!
How accurate was the sizing? i would give it a 4 out of 5 - the plates weren't EXACTLY the same size.
After eyeing this piece and reading several of the reviews I was very skeptical to order this piece. It arrived and as I took out each panel I was amazed. However, the last and third panel was damaged at the top which included a cracked piece and a broken piece that was not in the box. I could only conclude that it was sent damaged. I immediately contacted customer service who was more than understanding and helpful. The replacement piece is on its way and hopefully not damaged. It's definitely worth ordering if you receive the piece not damaged. I did not experience any smell and to be honest didn't even notice if the face was opposite way. Beautiful, timeless piece.
I noticed the reverse side of the panels were black and after closer inspection realized it was charred, burned. It stinks like a camp fire to the high heavens. I tried wiping it down and it didn't help a bit. My whole apartment smells like it now. I'm not happy.
I read the reviews, and so I knew that this was going to be a rustic piece. I have done some furniture refinishing, and so I was willing to take the risk. The piece did not have any mold nor was it warped as some buyers experienced. But, the nose had a severe flat spot that I had to sand to make the nose look normal. Additionally, the piece measured 36" although the description said 30". So, my husband helped me cut it down to 35 " to fit the space. But, I knew that might have to happen based on another review. The sanding and cutting meant that I had to stain the nose and ends to match. It took some time. At the end of the day, this piece is less rustic because of the work we did. But, it is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I would recommend to anyone who appreciates the rusticity of the piece.

I read in some reviews that the buddha faces the other direction than what is shown. Is this the case? and if so, can you request one that is as shown? Also, does this artist have different sizes?chrissym on Apr 24, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
We can find one that is the same direction as the picture - it seems that most customers really don't have a preference. This item also comes in a 20"x30" size in the same dark brown or a golden color.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 25, 2012
