Story Behind the Art: Khun Pen speaks of his art: '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. 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.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill will create variations in color, size and design. Color differences may occur between the actual product and your computer screen. If buying two of the same item, slight differences will occur from piece to piece.
This item may display patches, due to the tools used in its creation. Any knotholes, cracks, natural inclusions or visible marks are results from the natural wood. This does not compromise the structural integrity of the piece, but is part of its design.
I was so excited to purchase these panels. They are lovely. Expect much variation in the carving - to me that is a large part of their beauty. HOWEVER, the panels that I received were a honey color with a few streaks of dark brown here and there. I was under the impression from the stock photo and description that these were in the dark brown/black range. These would not work where I planned to put them, being so light. I couldn't justify the additional expense (and work) of sanding and re-staining, so they had to be returned. If you do not have a preference for color, these may be perfect. I wonder if the wrong panels were sent to me, though the box sticker did say 'Black Stain'. Unfortunately I can't seem to figure out how to add a photo to this review........
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Not even close
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Variations to be expected in craftsmanship (actual carving) - color nowhere near what was expected
How accurate was the sizing? Not sure - I didn't measure as I knew they had to go back.
the beauty, price, and size of this piece are outstanding! I've looked at pieces this size and found them closer to $1000. I hung this on a very high wall and it adds so much drama and interest. fast shipping, quality piece!!!!!!
