Story Behind the Art: 'From the time I was a boy, I was attracted to art,' recalls Alejandro de Esesarte. 'When I was 20, I became an ecologist and defender of nature, and this is when I began to create animals in metal. My technique is similar to cutout metal, but more rudimentary. From this, I became inspired and started working in metal for its versatility. Today I have a workshop, a cockatoo named Coco and a cactus collection. Those are all the tools I need to continue working.'

We purchased this beautiful wall decoration for our wall outside on our porch. Considering that the Florida sun and rain will hit it now and then, I bought 2 cans of liquid plastic spray at the store. After spraying, drying and repeating the steps, the pretty heron was ready to attach to the wall.
Very handsome piece. My only regret is that it was not made with a heavier metal. Other than that, the palm tree, cattails and dragonfly are all individual cut artwork. That's why I titled this, "3-D" as that is what it looks like.
This took a little longer to receive than other orders, but it was really worth the wait. I thought is was a bit pricey, too, but worth every penny. This piece came very well packaged, and the workmanship is superb. Some pieces of grass and the dragonfly protrude from the main body of the piece, which gives it classy, expensive look. I would highly recommend this to others who are looking for this type of art.
