Throughout Haiti, especially at the time of Lent & Easter, you will find Rara bands working their way through the roads & streets of Haiti, playing music on primitive instruments. This decorative wall hanging is hand cut from upcycled – recycled 50 gallon steel drums. Both ends of the drum are removed & placed inside of the remaining cylinder along with scrap paper, dried banana or sugar cane leaves. It is set on fire, to burn off any paint or residue. When cooled, the drum is cut down the side & flattened out to create a metal canvas” of approximately 3′ x 6′, upon which the design is drawn. Using hammer, chisel & various primitive tools, the shape is cut & the various decorative patterns are pounded into the metal, creating a unique & treasured piece of primitive art. The finished design is coated with a protective finish. Can be hung indoors or outdoors. Upcycling is to reuse an object or materials (55 gallon steel oil drums) to create a product of higher value or quality than the original object or materials. The process of taking something that would be thrown away & turning it into something useful & of value. We make all of our metal art pieces in our own workshop in Port au Prince, Haiti. Our photos show some of the process of turning a recycled steel drum into a work of art for your home. Click to view our other categories of Haitian metal art.
