    Story Behind the Art:
    Founded in 1990 by a multinational group of young entrepreneurs, Caribbean Craft (formerly known as Drexco) promotes employment in Haiti by training unskilled, but often highly gifted, craftspeople and by assisting the independent artisans through the introduction of new designs and new market outlets. Unemployment in Haiti, the poorest country of the American hemisphere, is variously estimated at between 60 and 80-percent.

      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.

    • Beautiful addition
      Verified Purchase

      We have an 11 foot stone fireplace in our family room and have used a number of items to break up the stone and add to the visual effect of the wall. While we always "settled" for something, we never really came across something we really liked. After reading about the oil drum Haitian artworks, we decided giving the Tree of Life a chance against the stone. We were a little skeptical of what we were going to receive, but were overwhelmed when it arrived. It's a beautifully crafted product, very professional, and a definite conversation piece. Its color breaks up the stone, yet doesn't overwhelm the wall. We have received a number of compliments on the piece and couldn't be happier that we bought it.

      This is a beautifully executed piece of art. The only negative is that there is no hanger attached so I had to creatively find a wall hanger that would be inconspicuous and would come through one of the piercings. That is my ONLY negative about the piece. Love it and would buy it again.

      I was very pleased with this item. It is better than the picture. The patina and color are beautiful. It is very eye-catching when you walk into the room. I have received countless compliments on this unusual wall decor. I was worried about the weight but it wasn't as heavy as I imagined.

    • Very pretty wall art
      Verified Purchase

      This is a pretty piece of wall art. There was no odor, as other reviewers of oil drum art have noted. It was true to size. I believe the item was probably punched from a mold and then hand accented. However, it is a pretty piece and guests often comment on it. I love the "tree of life" design and was wavering between this one and the one without buds. I'm glad I purchased this item.

    • A beautiful piece.
      Verified Purchase

      Other reviewers here on Overstock said this was a gorgeous handmade piece of art, and they were right. I gasped when I opened the box. Although there is no hanger included with the "Tree of Life," it was simple enough to find a wall hanger and bend it to extend through one of the gaps/cuts in the piece. A quick swipe of a black marker and it virtually disappeared. The art itself has real presence (in part because it curves outward slightly) and a certain energy about it. Nice patina - not too shiny or too dark. The birds look like characters. I also bought a smaller 8 x 8" piece (Tree of Life and Three East Birds Wall Art) to complement it in a different part of the same room. Thanks to the Haitian artist who made it! I'm so pleased.

      This item is lovely and I hung it on the front brick wall to my home. We had just repainted and installed new lighting and this was the perfect accent for a bare wall on the front porch. Would be lovely anywhere including inside. Very attractive ... maybe use some for Christmas this year as gifts for my Garderners.
