Story Behind the Art:
There are many artisans in Croix des Bouquets, an area of Port-Au-Prince, Haiti known for artisans who make oil drum art. The constant hammering from the sheds in the area led us to beautiful metalwork, with each stop offering new designs.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
I purchased this piece as the focal piece for our powder room and am completely impressed. I titled my review as a Metal Sculpture as this is truly a beautifully structured piece of art. I have also purchased the painted Tree of Life and am extremely happy with both. Thank you Overstock.com for introducing us to the Haitian artists that made this piece. If you are looking for a conversation starter, this piece of art is for you.
At the cost and description I was expecting a handmade artwork. It is actually done simply by pouring the metal into a mold, which can be easily replicated in thousands. Unless you have a specific spot that you want to use it to do cover up, it is really not up to be collected. Way overpriced.
