Earth-friendly Metal Sculptures-Haitian artisans recycle 55-gallon metal drums into this lustrous wall hanging. Detailed hammered cutwork celebrates the natural world.

Product Features

  • Hand-crafted from cast-off 55 gallon steel drums, artists in Haiti follow four generations of tradition in metal sculpture.
  • The artist first visualizes his design, often taking inspiration from his culture and natural surroundings.
  • Next, he chalks his design onto the flattened metal and then, using only a hammer and chisel, gives the sculpture form and dimension.
  • The result is a unique piece of folk art, perfect for home or garden use.
  • These sculptures are great indoor or out~ For outdoor use the varnish will wear away over time and the sculpture will begin to rust naturally or you can maintain the original look by spraying it with a clear enamel every couple of years~

    I was looking for a more permanent way of marking our house number by the mailbox. I came across the metal numbers made by artist from Haiti. I was already impressed with my first purpose of the tree of life.I love the numbers I received! The size will make quite a statement along with the antique bronze color and raised pattern on each one.I have made serval purchases from this seller. Each one has been so exact to what you see in the picture and even more beautiful in person…
