Story Behind the Art:
Eugene Jacques and Carlos Brutus live 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 is a sign of beautiful metalwork, with each stop offering new designs. Their shed is tucked behind several others and yields unique three-dimensional masks with cogs and bicycle chains for earrings. Each piece is a work of art and signed.
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.

Love it. Have it hanging in my large bathroom. Very niceRead More
This is a beautiful piece of artwork. I wanted something unique to hang in a window facing my outdoor deck that would look good from either side. Although the side facing outward has much less detail it still looks good. There are no hooks on the artwork so I will have to figure out how to hang it but I will figure something out. The best part is this is a fair trade purchase so the artisans, families and communities in Haiti benefit.Read More
