Show your love with this Tree of Life 'Lover's Heart' wall art created from a recycled oil drum. This wall art is created from hammering the oil drum into this unique and beautiful shape.
Tree of life design with heart shaped branches
Materials: Recycled steel oil drum
Dimensions: 24-inches in diameter
Story Behind the Art: Carlo Brutus is just one 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 led us to beautiful metalwork, with each stop offering new designs.
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 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.
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.

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".
Thank you for contacting us, jazzyjj. The patina will vary from piece to piece, they are coated steel drums, that typically have a polished look. We do get some that are more aged. Expect to get a more polished metallic piece.
Gray / silver.
