Story Behind the Art: Khun Pen
Making lotus panels from recycled teak has been done for generations in my family. Originally my elders made the panels as window screen guards to keep out snakes and small animals as many people had no glass. The designs were drawn from ancient memory and depict mainly the lotus bud or flower which is a sign of purity in the Buddhist sense. We only use recycled wood planks from old structures that are being replaced with more modern construction. All work is done in a communal setting as there are many stages done by hand; as such panels are not of a perfect size or thickness. This is not a regular job as we have to tend the fields also. It is a way to do something together and make extra currency

I am really disappointed in this product - it was so pretty in the photo, but looks like it was put together by a sloppy person in a big hurry. Joints, seams and filler are readily apparent allover; shiny hanging brackets show through on front from back and it is 25% less thickness than stated. I think the quality is pretty bad!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No-onsite color was much more even - mine looks like it has horizontal stripes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Generally, the carving is really nice - was looking forward to hanging this in my bathroom
How accurate was the sizing? Overall size is pretty accurate - thickness is 1.5 cm, not 2 cm
I previously purchased a similar teak carving of elephants, which I was and am so pleased with. I mistakenly thought this would be the same quality but it is nowhere near. It seems unfinished, the edges aren't smooth like in my other one, and as a previous reviewer said it looks striped from the stain not being applied right. I think I will have to get some kind of wood stain and finish it myself. Pretty disappointed considering it is over $***
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? no
