Story Behind the Art:
Carlo Brutus and Eugene Jacques are two of the many artisans 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 leads to beautiful metalwork with each shop offering new designs. Eugene's 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 with 'Eugene'. Carlo has what seems like hundreds of different designs of the ubiquitous round steel drum artwork hanging from every inch of wall space in his tiny warehouse. The Diaspora of Haitians has spread the designs and skills of Oil Drum art throughout the Caribbean but the art is truly Haitian. Old oil drums are no longer readily available and are imported into Haiti by container and sold to the artisans. Even though cheaper more readily available steel sheets could be used artisans rely on the used drums for the patina in their 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.

This is an exquisite but small metal relief that is beautifully made. I purchased it as a memorial to my husband, and a reminder of his favorite reggae song, "Three Little Birds." When he was sick, one of the nurses was singing it, and it became his mantra: "Rise up this mornin', smile with the rising sun, three little birds each by my doorstep. Singing sweet songs of melodies pure and true. Saying, Don't worry bout a thing, cause every little thing's gonna be alright." It now hangs in my living room, by the window, as a reminder he is near, and every thing will be alright...Read More
