Story Behind the Art: Founded in 1990 by a multinational group of young entrepreneurs, Caribbean Craft, formerly known as Drexco, promotes employment in Haiti by training unskilled but highly gifted craftspeople. By assisting the independent artisans through the introduction of new designs and new market outlets they are helping lower unemployment in Haiti, the poorest country of the American hemisphere.
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.
The artwork is unique and very well done. It is different as I don't have anything else like it. I basically have a Southwest theme on my home so it works very well. I decided to hang it outside and it looks great. It was nice to buy a piece of artwork done in Haiti.
I am so pleased with the quality of this item. Tears come to my eyes when I think of the artisian that spent so much time lovingly creating this item for an Overstock customer. I will cherish it always. It was delivered in a couple of days, and the price was fantastic for such a special piece of art!
The steel drum is from used oil drum which are then hammered to design. The metal thickness varies but is a couple of mm thick on average. The actual finished piece is around 2.5 to 3 inches deep.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 4, 2013
