The first delivery was a miss. The product arrived as scheduled, but it was white/powdery/mildew/stinky. I chatted with Overstock right away, and they provided a shipping label had a duplicate product sent. The second arrived, and it is what I expected! We got 6 brackets from Home Depot to connect the panels and form one piece (great advice from a previous review!). I think it would have been difficult to hang otherwise. It really looks great in our living room!!
We couldn't be happier with the look of the Recycled Teak Wood Panels from Thailand. I was prepared from previous reviews to receive a product that may have "flaws", afterall it's handcarved.. Others also mentioned that the panels may not match up perfectly. Knowing all of this beforehand was quite helpful.. We have a piece that is unique and beautiful!
I have this hanging above the mango and reed storage bench (also from this site) in my yoga/meditation room. It is absolutely gorgeous. As some of the other comments mention, do not expect perfection from hand carved items. The important thing is that all the carvings line up nicely when hung properly. I would suggest using little metal plates to join each of the four panels together at the top, middle, and bottom of each panel and having a framing shop install picture wire so that it can be hung more easily. If you're handy enough, you can do this yourself. It is a beautiful piece. I'm so happy that I purchased it.
We love it. Just be aware it is living wood and is hand carved so the edges will not be in a straight line. Highly recommend taking it out of the box and letting sit in the room you will hang it so the wood can adjust to the humidity/dryness. We neglected to do this and it shifted on the wall after a week or so and had to make some adjustments. If you are not handy higher a carpenter to hang it....it is a bit tricky.

We are so happy that we decided to buy this piece. It`s beautifully made and is quiet a statement in any room. It`s a little bit difficult to hang up because it comes in 4 single pieces that are not 100% even (handmade),but it is SO worth the work! We love it!!!

It's big, beautiful and very detailed to my surprise! It's gonna be hanging behind my rocking chair (what I also purchased from Overstock.com) and I can't wait for the result... I know it's going to look freaking awesome!

We LOVE this hanging in our entry way. Quite a statement. Looks like an antique screen. It says that is is "black stain" but it is perfectly dark brown like in the picture. Remember that it is four panels and they are unique and hand made, so it is a bit tricky to hang (each panel has two hooks), but it was worth it! I love that each panel is slightly different, but the central image lines up perfectly. This would look awesome in almost any room- bathroom, hallway, entryway, bedroom. Great conversation piece, too.

Great choice for our space. We were looking for an interesting art piece to go over a large stair well. This piece has nice details and adds good interest to the space. Very happy with it.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes; the color is not quite as dark as I pictured, but is great.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's antique "like" so imperfection is part of the charm. We attached the four pieces together (on the back) before hanging to make it easier to hang. The piece looks great. The wall behind it is a rich golden yellow which shows through nicely.
- How accurate was the sizing? Right on.
I really love this piece . It is tricky to hang as it comes in 4 panels that weigh 8 lbs each and I ended up calling my carpenter to get it level and he did it in 30 min. It really makes a statement. Love it Love it.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Looks very nice
- How accurate was the sizing? pretty close
I absolutely love these panels. They were purchased to go above the fireplace. They look so original. I can't even begin to tell you the amount of compliments we get. The panels are made by hand, so don't expect four panels that are exactly the same. However, if you are looking for a large piece that is truly unique and will make a statement in your home, then buy this. You won't regret it!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The panels are all handmade, so you will see varations. That's what makes it look unique.
- How accurate was the sizing? The panels come in four separate panels.
