does this need a frame? Or does the canvas color extend onto the edges so it needs no frame?
I have to say out of everything I have ordered from overstock this is still my all time favorite, the size, color, and quality is just perfect. It has such a unique look to it and just adds that perfect finish to the dinning room....

Story Behind the Art:
Komang Astawa works in a second-generation family Coop art studio on the Island of Bali. Their skills of hand-painting, have been passed down for many generations. We are proud to support them in their quest to keep their age-old techniques alive for future generations. These highly skilled artisans live in a well renown village of Batuan where many painters are able to earn a decent living for their family.
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.

I am sad to say this one was a complete miss. I have purchased other art pieces from overstock and I have been so happy with them. I sent the first one they sent me back. The gold is actually orange. There is no shading. Not only are the colors completely different, but in fact this one is a completely different piece of art when it arrives. The second one I received had exactly the same issues. To be perfectly candid, Buddha actually looks like Fat Albert on orange velvet with some gold accents randomly tossed about.Read More

Even though I did think I would see more blue hues as depicted in the picture on O., the painting itself still have that mystique to it that draws you in...so I love it and kept it!Read More
I would give this piece of art 5 stars, except that I was hoping to receive the colors that I saw online (green and blue at the time but I received browns and golds). It does say in the fine print that no 2 pieces are the same and you may receive one that does not exactly match the image so in that sense I was a little disappointed. However, what came to me is just as beautiful and brilliant as I was hoping for. It's an eye-catcher piece and works well in any room. I think it's cool to have a hand-made, unique piece of art in my home :)Read More
Would have loved this gift if it was as depicted in the picture in the description. As another reviewer mentioned, in the display picture, the colors appear as gold and blue. The painting I received was white and salmon colored. It also appears as though there is perspective in the painting, and it is evident only in the foil background. The buddha paintstrokes looked like spray paint, which appeared almost graffiti-like. Fortunately, I was able to return this and can only rave about the customer service.Read More
I love the face of the Buddah, that's why I kept it, but it does not look anything like the picture. The colors are brown and peach. There is no blue or white like my picture shows. I put it in a guest room, not the intended space of my bedroom.Read More
