Story Behind the 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; 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
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 is very nice - heavy and well-made. It goes very well with other carved items I have, and really sets them off nicely. While it's not the most skillful carving I've ever seen, I like the rustic feel of the piece and definitely think it is worth the price.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Absolutely

This is a good quality piece for the price. Good weight--easy to hang with an anchor. Some of the color variations were a bit much, so I used a dark stain and went over a few spots. Also, there is a substantial amount of glue where they attached the individual pieces. I had to use a small tool to scrape a lot of it off. Other than that, it looks great! lots of compliments.
better than the picture and arrived a lot faster than i was initially told.the packages were delivered to the wrong address by fed ex and as a result they were left outside in the rain and damp overnight but because they were packaged so well they weren't damaged at all.
