ITEM#: 11603992

Add a unique accent to your home decor with a handcrafted night sky metal sculpture. The wall hanging is intricately constructed from recycled metal oil drums in Haiti.

Product Features:
  • 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.

  • No hardware for hanging
    Verified Purchase

    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.

  • beautiful art work, needs a way to hang
    Verified Purchase

    The piece is beautiful, but needs a hanger of some sort to allow mounting. Was drawn to the piece due to the unique use of a metal drum.

    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.

    Verified Purchase

    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.

    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!

  • can I hang this outside? will it tolerate weather ??

    • 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.
