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.
He is so very colorful and looks so playful. Keep in mind he is not very large. He is durable and will not easily bend. I own several and love them all they are great on your patio or garden. He really brightens things up. I love mine.
Bought this for a friend who collects tree frogs. It will be hung on the patio wall where it will be seen by drivers going down Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach. She loves it! I hope Overstock will have more in different colors to add to her collection.
