The rectangular panel consists of up to four tiles arranged vertically on a rectangular piece of wood plaque. The multi-character design allows for the display of Chinese terms and poetic phrases. The wood plaque has rounded edges along the front face. It is primed, painted with a background color, then crackled with a contrasting top color. The entire surface is then sealed with a clear lacquer to protect the finish. The individual tiles are prepared and then attached to the plaque in one of two arrangements: square or diamond. For the square 4-tile arrangement, the panel measures around 6"x20", and for the diamond 4-tile arrangement, 8"x26". The smaller version is well suited for a subtle statement or a limited space. Each panel is equiped with a sawtooth hanger for ready hanging.
The color finish on the wood plaque may be plain or crackled with a combination of black, red, gold, silver, and/or white. The uniquely random outcome of the crackled finish on each panel is wonderfully pleasing and attractive.
Little 2"x2" ceramic tiles are adored with the twelve Chinese Zodiac signs, with pictures of the animals uniquely created by InCharacter Calligraphy. The little red organza bags are just a nice touch when presenting the tile magnets as gifts.
