ITEM#: 14000872

Representing the trunk in the Tree of Life, this long curved mask is hand-cut and hand-etched from recycled oil drums in Haiti. This varnished mask is accented with aluminum earrings and has a riveted hook for hanging.

Product Features:
  • Materials: Recycled steel oil drums, aluminum
  • Design: Tree of life
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor use
  • Decorative piece
  • Signed by artisan
  • Dimensions: 22 inches high x 16 inches wide (including hair)

Story Behind the Art:
Jocelyn is one of the few female metalwork artisans 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.

  • Cool piece!
    Verified Purchase

    Cool mask as are the other two I bought along with this one. Nice quality workmanship. One small oddity is how do you hang these? They're curved in the back and the hanger is a loop near the top underside of mask...In order to hang it from this loop, the hanging device has to show, ie. a string/wire/etc. I solved the problem by positioning masks and pushing two nails into wall under the ears (masks hang by the ears this way). They look great!

    This is a fantastic, large, metal mask. Very well made. I loved that you could slightly move the hair so that the mask will hang flat.

    Large piece of art.... He is a welcome addition to my companion pieces in this mask collection. (also purchased from Overstock) He invokes the facial expression of self assurance. I have it displayed along with the companion pieces, mounted outside my home office door. From largest to smallest. The comments are always a "wow - where did you find these unique pieces?" Followed by - "they are investment pieces"

    Really cool artist expression. I love the gage of the metal, not too thin or thick. The curls that make up the hair is awesome. I'm very pleased with this purchase.
