Why did you choose this product?
Ordered one as a gift. Loved the Toran i received so much, that i kept it for myself and ordered another one for the gift. Then kept that one, too :) and ordered the 3rd. I love the way the mirrors almost twinkle when you walk past them because of the changes in reflected light. All the colors are deep, rich colors. The 'yellow' has an edge trim of red, so that contrast was actually not quite as pleasing to me as the more same-palette tones of the red and blue...but it was still beautiful. I have them hung by their sewn-in loops at the top ends (there's one in the middle too) across the start and end of a narrow hallway. It looks beautiful....

They feature elephants, considered very blessed and lucky, and are placed over the door of the entrance to the house. They are colorful and inlaid with little mirrors. Each is slightly different in color combinations so they reflect the handmade quality that one would expect from a home cottage industry product. Expect slight differences in the color combinations but they can be closely matched for a wonderful decorative effect. Each toran is a labor of love, and many hands.
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.
