I purchased this beautiful piece after an exhausting search for the perfect piece to compliment what I refer to as 'my wall of fame'--A wall dedicated to the art my children created since the age of two. Most of the pieces I framed have a tree or leaf theme and though this piece is called 'Lover's Heart', it is perfect. My son passed away suddenly last August so the tree speaks to my heart as a constant reminder of the beautiful love he brought into my life and though my daughter is now 20, I still hold to those pieces as the most special part of my décor. I am more than happy with my purchase.
I bought 3 Trees of Life: Lover's Heart (black), Buds (with birds, charcoal), and the Tree of Life (with birds only, brown). They are arrayed above my king-size headboard. The subtle embellishments made by the artisans' chisels give depth and even more dimension to these handsome works of art. None of my pieces had hanging hardware. Be prepared with a nail with a good-sized flat head (preferably not shiny silver) and find a sweet spot near the middle for balance. Mine held with one nail each. The color variations are subtle, sometimes looking like 3 slightly different colors, sometimes looking the same. The photographs represent the colors well. A variety of pieces crafted by the Haitian oil-drum artists were featured on CBS Sunday Morning on 10/13/13.
Lovely piece of 'folk' art, made from recycled steel drum lid (although it looks like embossed metal; no oil or rust spots!). Came with 'Fair Trade' label, and looks lovely on the wall.

This has to be the most beautiful design of the metal wall art, steel drum art works. The tree of life has a wall hanger and glossy finish. Hearts prefered & tree of life desired, this is it of the metal wall art. Will coordinate with other metal wall arts and trees of life.
We just added a new detached garage to the house and wanted something distinctive to make it look like part of the house an not a giant shed. We saw this piece and knew it was "perfect" for us. Size, theme, its history as a recycled piece and workmanship just caught our fancy. And then we got it and just had to have it up immediately. It added class and a distinctive look that others say it is "us".
