    I received this bench in record time!! WoW, such fast delivery1 It was well packed and arrived in perfect condition:) I am a retired international flight attendant and have spent much time in Ghana and have always wished to have been able to purchase many pieces of art especially their wood carvings but due to shipping costs and custom issues I was never able to bring these pieces home to enjoy them in my home until I found this bench on Overstock. It is exactly the same as the benches that I had discovered during my many adventures in South America! Very pretty, extremely sturdy and an excellent price :) Thank you Overstock for helping to bring one of my dreams come true!!

    I ordered this since the description stated it was black. It is brown so I couldn't use it in the area for which it was intended. It is still a nice bench but very low to the ground,

    Bought it for a gift but decided to keep it . Very original design. I used it to display Cat wood sculptures . It looks like one big piece. I cleaned it with furniture wax and it looks like stone now.

    It is a very cool, unique piece - however WAY too small for the use I had intended. I needed a small bench/stool to fit under a window in the closet nook of my bedroom. This piece is so low that it appears to be missing something... If you are looking for something ornamental, its a great find, however it is inot very functional.
