    Hand-cut and worked with textural patterns, this wall piece is made from recycled oil drums in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti. Perfect for indoor or outdoor use, this wall art features a Tree of Life design with three birds.

    Product Features:
    • Colors: Brass
    • Design: Tree of Life, three birds
    • Materials: Recycled steel drum
    • Dimensions: 8 inches in diameter

    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.

  • Lovely...

    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...

  • Cute wall art!

    Have been looking quite a while for some sort of tree wall art that really appealed to me. This is a cute addition to my hallway! For the price I would have liked for it have been a bit larger, but it's such a unique piece that I love it as is.

    Look good on wall the way they are arranged with the shelves (which were very difficult to hang).

  • LOVELY PIECE OF ART

    It is hard to believe that something like this could be made from recycled oil drums. This wall art is very well made with beautiful detail throughout.

  • Lovely Wall Art

    The tree of life is unique and a charming piece of wall art. It is small and light weight but stands out as I hung it in a small area in the entrance way to my apartment. The design is beautiful and eye catching with a happy feel to it.

  • So cute

    Very cute this little one we used on the smaller fascia of our house to accompany the 24" tree of life which we placed on the larger fascia. Stunning, beautiful and very eye catching. Highly recommend.
