Story Behind the Art: Khun Pen speaks of her 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 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.
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
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.
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.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Better than I expected
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Looks very nice
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.
Received a couple of weeks ago as a present for my wife. Box looked OK but when opened one of the panels had a broken piece that we could have easily glued. But one of the other panels had a cracked frame. Too bad it is a cool piece
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.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good
How accurate was the sizing? You have to choose which you want to match....top and bottom edges or the flower in the middlle and the circle that surrounds it.
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!!!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? It`s darkbrown....exactly the way it looks in the picture.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice quality...it`s worth the money.
How accurate was the sizing? Sizing is correct. It comes in 4 pieces.
I have the same question and the above answer is still confusing. If you put 4 x12 square inch pieces together you only get a 48 by 12 inch piece (if put side by side) or a 24 by 24 inch piece (if arranged in a square). To get 48 inch square with four pieces, you need each piece to be 24 by 24 inches????9648 on Apr 21, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I'm sorry for that mistake. This is the correct information. Each piece measures 12 in W x 48 in Long approximately.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 24, 2012
Confused .... how big is this piece? Is it 4 square panels, each 12 inches square (thus being 24 inches square)? Or, is it 48 inches square? The description is inconsistent to me. Thanks. on Apr 15, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
There are 4 panels measuring 12 inches each. 12 inches times 4 panels, give you a total of 48 inches.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 16, 2012
