Story Behind the Art: Caribbean Craft 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 three year long embargo on all Haitian exports. Caribbean Craft currently employs 400 artisans either as salaried employees or outside contractors, with roughly equal numbers of men and women. The natural artistic talents of the Haitians are well known, and many of these hand-painted pieces are truly works of art.
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.
My daughter and I used these to decorate our front porch. We both had a blast. They are the cutest little works of art. I'm not sure how many are left, though. I think I bought out all of your stock. We would definitly buy more of these if they were offered on your site.

These little guys are so very cute!!! I have most of them. The colors are remarkable, colorful. He will look so cute on your patio or garden. He is durable and will not easily bend. Keep in mind they are small. I was a little surprised with my first one. I didn't pay attention to the measurements. I don't think you will be disappointed.
I purchased seven of the recycled oil drum geckos in various colors for an impact wall in the men's restroom of a Mexican restaurant. The guys love the impact and got a kick out of the gecko formation. I carefully ben the legs of the geckos and glued them to a bright-colored (vibrant blue) wall, so the impact was stunning. They do have a sturdy small triangular hook on the back for mounting, but I glued them to the wall since once I bent them, the hook wasn't usable. I even had glued one across the corner of the room, with one leg glued to each wall and the other legs stretched out to give it the walking effect. I bought one pink one and mounted it to the ceiling! I love supporting the Haitian people and these geckos reflect their artistry. Note: I wrote a poor review for another (blue) one, as the colors looked faded. All others were not faded and I used them all together, as once it was on a bright wall it didn't look so washed out. Highly recommend!

I brough 3 different metal painted Jungle Design Gecko. They are all so vibrant and energetic with color. The Overstock pictures are good but this item is much better when seen in hand. I love vibrant themes and I think these will be part of my backyard walking path tropical them.
