Description

A stunning peacock, with beautiful detailing. Use the scroll over function to fully appreciate the intricate cutwork that went into this piece. Hand-crafted in Haiti. The art of handcrafting metal sculptures that has been handed down for several generations provides a sustainable living for over 100 families in a small village in Haiti. The work begins with a recycled 55 gallon steel drum. The steel drum is prepared for the sculpture by removing the top, stuffing it with dried banana leaves & straw & finally igniting it to burn off any residue & paint. Once the barrel is cool, it is pounded into a flat sheet & prepared for the sculpture. The artist draws his intended shape on the metal & begins his work with a hammer & chisel.Wha Metal Peacock, Inspirational Wall Décor, Indoor & Outdoor Garden, Handmade Recycled Steel Barrels 23″ Haitian Artwork
