It feels very rough and very new. I was hoping for a little better workmanship since it was to be a gift. The polish was put on so quickly and sloppily, it came off on my hands. I have buffed it, sanded it lightly and then restained it properly and it looks better.
This piece was larger than I anticipated however, it was perfect for the area I wanted to hang it in..... the only thing that I wish was more secure was the attachment used for hanging, it appeared strong however, I did not want to chance it... Overall, it is a Great Art Piece!!
I was just as pleased when I received the product as when I saw it online and made the purchase. The workmanship of the piece is phenomenal; the carving is intricate and the colors are beautiful. It is a comical, yet sincere depiction of love between a woman and a man. We put it in our bedroom so my husband and I could enjoy it everyday.
