The description calls this "metal wall art", but the image appears to be a painting on metal and a depth of 2.5". The package arrived and was damage free, but when we opened it, it wasn't exactly what we expected. There were 4 pieces of essentially sheet metal. The actual depth of the pieces are a few millimeters. You then have to fold back pieces of metal at the top and bottom to create the areas to hang it from. The hanging mechanism itself is 2.5" deep. So the flat pieces of sheet metal are pushed away from the wall by the 2.5" metal folded hanger.As for the image itself, the metal pieces have been polished in a way that it reflects light in a sort of starburst pattern from the center of the tree. Then an image was simply printed on top of the metal. There isn't any sort of painting or original artwork to this piece other than the polishing of the metal and fixing the print to the metal. WARNING: This looks pretty crappy and is completely blinding if hung on a wall with direct sunlight. Make sure you're intending to hang it where it only gets indirect light from the sun.It's a pretty neat an original piece once it's hung up and we will be keeping it. You can't find anything like this anywhere else. I just wish this was a painting and not simply "art" created by computer.
