My almost 17 year old daughter is impossible to buy for....but she LOVED this on Christmas day! Thanks Overstock for helping me get something right! The screen is HUGE and the colors vibrant....much better than the picture.
The screen is truly lovely, though be aware that the border of fabric between the image and the wood frame is more yellow than it appears in the picture.
Also, as an aside, these are NOT geese, they are CRANES. An important distinction, especially given the significance of cranes in Asian art.
OK, received the wrong screen first time around and then that particular item was out of stock until whenever, so I chose this one. It arrived quickly and carefully packaged and is so very BEAUTIFUL! Torquise color depicted on my monitor was more muted in real life and blended perfectly with accents in my living room. Now for the hanging ... as everyone before me has said, it's pretty bad. It takes two people to hang --- one who sort of knows what they are doing (that would NOT be me) and the other person who stands there looking concerned and gets cursed out repeatedly (that would be me). My husband took 4 sawtooth picture hangers and attached two to the middle larger panel and one on each end panel then put up 4 nails all level and together we hung the screen. It looks great! You are given an oriental brass decorative "hanger" that could only be used for decoration ... I saved mine for something else. Lastly, as others have stated, this item was totally mistitled as they are NOT geese, they are cranes!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Color was better than my monitor and more of the shades I needed!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
the cranes (not geese) in water artwork is exactly what I wanted. it fits perfectly over our couch and is a centerpiece for the room. I love it! now I want to look for other similar things on the site.

This artwork was the focal piece in our living room for years. I loved that it was a large, hand-painted looking piece of art for an affordable price. Guess what? It still hangs in our living room, but I painted over it with an original design to match my new decor. So even when you don't like the style anymore, you can still use it as a canvas for other things.

I love the delicate artwork and the colors of this silk screen. It was as expected. However, I did not expect it to be so difficult to hang. It only comes with two very thin brackets (useless) and other methods of hanging pictures do not work because of the screen's construction. It's a bit heavier than it appears. For most of the year, it's been propped up on the back of my sofa leaning against the wall. I will soon be atttempting to hang it using many of those velcro picture hangers. I'm hoping that works. I get many compliments on this piece and still think it was worth buying.
