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.
These little geckos are just so darn cute, I bought three! As others have said, they are small (about 8 inches). They are all cut from the same "mold" but painted differently. They come with one well-attached hook for hanging, but if you want to arrange them in a different pose, you can just hook them to nails using the angles of their bodies. I love that some of the profit from these items goes to support artisans in Haiti, who need our support more than ever. Great additions to our patio!
She is so cute. I have her and many more. They are so colorful and playful. They are such an addition to your patio or garden. Keep in mind they are small. She has a hook on back to be hung. I enjoy mine. I am going to collect them all.
