'One can see this is type white heron wading in the waters of Lake Chapala,' says Mexican artisan Alejandro de Esesarte. Cut and painted by hand from sheets of steel, the graceful heron observes a dragonfly among cattails on the shore.Product Features:

'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.'What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
