Story Behind the Art:
Founded in 1990 by a multinational group of young entrepreneurs, 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.

Nice piece of art. Not as heavy as I imagined it would be. Very unique.Read More
This is a beautifully executed piece of art. The only negative is that there is no hanger attached so I had to creatively find a wall hanger that would be inconspicuous and would come through one of the piercings. That is my ONLY negative about the piece. Love it and would buy it again.Read More
We have an 11 foot stone fireplace in our family room and have used a number of items to break up the stone and add to the visual effect of the wall. While we always "settled" for something, we never really came across something we really liked. After reading about the oil drum Haitian artworks, we decided giving the Tree of Life a chance against the stone. We were a little skeptical of what we were going to receive, but were overwhelmed when it arrived. It's a beautifully crafted product, very professional, and a definite conversation piece. Its color breaks up the stone, yet doesn't overwhelm the wall. We have received a number of compliments on the piece and couldn't be happier that we bought it.Read More
I was very pleased with this item. It is better than the picture. The patina and color are beautiful. It is very eye-catching when you walk into the room. I have received countless compliments on this unusual wall decor. I was worried about the weight but it wasn't as heavy as I imagined.Read More
I bought 3 Trees of Life: Lover's Heart (black), Buds (with birds, charcoal), and the Tree of Life (with birds only, brown). They are arrayed above my king-size headboard. The subtle embellishments made by the artisans' chisels give depth and even more dimension to these handsome works of art. None of my pieces had hanging hardware. Be prepared with a nail with a good-sized flat head (preferably not shiny silver) and find a sweet spot near the middle for balance. Mine held with one nail each. The color variations are subtle, sometimes looking like 3 slightly different colors, sometimes looking the same. The photographs represent the colors well. A variety of pieces crafted by the Haitian oil-drum artists were featured on CBS Sunday Morning on 10/13/13.Read More

I've created a garden in front of a concrete wall and the look of the wall bothers me. This beautiful piece of art will make all the difference. Thanks, Tony.

it's about one pound!
I'm having a little difficulty telling by the picture if the metal leans more towards a goldish tone or towards a silver tone? I need something in the silver tone, without the gold brass hues. Please adise. Thank you.
