What are the dimensions of the sun.
Nice item that does look better in person. Smaller than expected, but still very nice and I'm happy with my purchase. Only issue is that hole to hang on Wall is inside the concave back and too deeply set for normal picture hook to catch. I had to use pliers to create larger picture hook to be able to catch the sun's hole. Plus, I had it hanging in an uncomfortable and awkwardly placed (for me) area so the whole hanging experience was actually more difficult and took longer than the two minutes expected. But it's hung now and looks great....

Story Behind the Art:
Founded in 1990, Caribbean Craft (formerly known as Drexco) promotes employment in Haiti by training unskilled - but often highly gifted - craftspeople, and by assisting the independent artisans through the introduction of new designs and new market outlets. Unemployment in Haiti, the poorest country of the American hemisphere, is variously estimated at between 60 and 80 percent. The organization has gone through rough times during the past years, marked by political troubles and economic difficulties including a 3-year-long embargo on all Haitian exports. Drexco saw in 1997 its premises totally ransacked and then destroyed during gang violence. Relocated in a higher-security industrial park, the organization currently employs 400 artisans either as salaried employees or outside contractors, with roughly equal numbers of men and women. Caribbean Craft's specialty is brightly colored, artistically hand-painted home decor objects, which can be purely decorative, such as wall hangings, or consist of objects useful in the home, like switch plates and magnets. The natural artistic talents of the Haitians are well known, and many of these hand-painted pieces are truly works of art.
The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design and sizing. Subtle variations will occur from piece to piece, adding to its unique qualities. Measurements may vary slightly.
