Constructed from recycled metal oil drums in Haiti
Handmade art is a great addition to any bare wall
Made by Carlos Brutus, one of the metal artisans in Haiti
Measures 24 inches in diameter
NOTE: Metal is not a shiny chrome, but more of a coffee color
Story Behind the Product: We met Eugene Jacques and Carlos Brutus 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. Their shed was tucked behind several others and yielded unique three-dimensional masks with cogs and bicycle chains for earrings.
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.
Metal Wall Art
Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
The art is nice. The size was just as advertised and the quality was good. The color was darker than pictured but I wasn't displeased by that. My only gripe is the lack of any hanger hardware attached to the back. There's no way to hang this in the correct orientation with a simple wall hanger or nail. It would be light enough to do so but the 3D curve out from the wall gives it an irregular depth.My solution was to wrap picture wire through the top-most hole and create a loop at the back that could go over a picture hanger. This would be noticeable if the art were at eye level but because we hung this 12 feet in the air above a ledge in our bedroom, we don't notice the wire or picture hanger. If you want to hang this at eye level, you will really have to get creative to figure out how to hide the hanger.
Ordered this on 09/29/10 and received the afternoon of 10/01/10!!! It's nicer than expected, very detailed . Also like the fact that these artisans are part of the Partners in Fair Trade. The piece is not ready to hang, but that is not a problem. Can't believe I received it so quickly. thanks again, overstock.com.
Of course, one has to like this particular type of work to be pleased, but I felt it is WONDERFUL. It is well made and sturdy. Just the piece I was looking for. I put it over the headboard of the guest room, as it has a black iron headboard, and this just completes the look I want.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well made and it is fairly heavy -- some pieces of a similar nature are lighter --NOT this one -- NICE!
Color much darker than shown. Otherwise a beautiful piece. I have it on an outside wall. Not much rain in Florida, so I think it will hold up well. I figured if it held oil for a long time, it shouldn't rust!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? NO
How is the quality of the product? Quality is excellent. Glad to help with recycling too. Great idea.
I purchased the piece because i have been looking for an item that represent the moon and the sun. This was exactly what I was looking for my ancestory history from haiti. Another to add to my collection.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. excellent
i bought three different oil drum wall art items that all matched, and look great on the walls. they are a good way to tie rooms together, or fill wall space down a hallway.
the finish is nice, they come off of the wall just enough (no more than 0.5") that it looks cool but is not obstructive.
i used 3-4 drywall screws, strategically located, to hang these....
Thank you for your question and I apologize for the delayed response This beautiful piece was named 'Night Sky' by the artist, because of the beautiful moon, stars, and sun in it.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 20, 2013
I own this beautiful piece and it looks great in my master room:)happycostumer221 on Mar 23, 2013
Yes it is sheet steel with a coat of varnish. If you intend to put it somewhere that is especially weather prone, you may want to add a second coat of clear weather protection available at any hardware store. The piece may develop a patina but should handle most climates.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 21, 2012
