The quality of carving is very good on this piece, and that made it worth the tweaking we needed to do to make the individual panels hang as a single image. The middle panel was quite warped at both the top and bottom, making significant gaps between the three pieces. This was solved with a belt sander, then re-staining the newly exposed raw wood. Hanging the three individual panels was also challenging to get pleasing alignment, but it turned out well in the end. If you are looking for "perfect" this may not be for you. If you have an eye for hand-made and can cope with the idiosyncrasies of old wood, this is a beautiful thing.
