    ITEM#: 13586094

    Hand-cut and worked with textural patterns, this wall piece is made from recycled oil drums in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti. Perfect for indoor or outdoor use, this wall art features a Tree of Life design with three east-facing birds.

    Product Features:
    • Colors: Brass
    • Design: Tree of Life, three east birds
    • Materials: Recycled steel drum
    • Dimensions: 8 inches wide x 8 inches long

    Story Behind the Art:
    Carlo Brutus and Eugene Jacques are two 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 leads to beautiful metalwork with each shop offering new designs. Eugene's shed is tucked behind several others and yields unique three-dimensional masks with cogs and bicycle chains for earrings. Each piece is a work of art and signed with 'Eugene'. Carlo has what seems like hundreds of different designs of the ubiquitous round steel drum artwork hanging from every inch of wall space in his tiny warehouse. The Diaspora of Haitians has spread the designs and skills of Oil Drum art throughout the Caribbean but the art is truly Haitian. Old oil drums are no longer readily available and are imported into Haiti by container and sold to the artisans. Even though cheaper more readily available steel sheets could be used artisans rely on the used drums for the patina in their art.

    • Beautifully executed piece of art
      Verified Purchase

      This was a nice surprise -- I expected to enjoy the balance of the silhouette design and the natural color of the steel, but unexpected was the detail and texture carved into the metal. The artist put real attention to detail into this small piece, and it's a delight to discover that kind of quality in such relatively humble materials. Happy!

    • A lovely piece.
      Verified Purchase

      I bought this handmade piece of steel drum art to complement a larger round 24" piece (Tree of Life with Buds) in a different part of the same room. Although small in size, it's really lovely and catches the eye immediately. It's also the perfect counterpart to the large round Tree of Life. Nice patina and handwork on this one. Thanks to the Haitian artist who made it. I'm proud to display it in my home.

    • Less than expected
      Verified Purchase

      Not as striking as I expected from pics. Kept it because it looks OK with a picture I was trying to complement. Feels flimsy. Won't get the other one I was thinking about.
