    Mini Noah's Ark Christmas Ornament (set of 3)  4.5" x 4.5"

    • Great for indoor or outdoor.
    • The artist first visualizes his design, often taking inspiration from his culture and natural surroundings.
    • Next, he chalks his design onto the flattened metal and then, using only a hammer and chisel, gives i form and dimension.
    • The result is a unique piece of folk art, perfect for home or garden use.
    • All of the Haitian Metal Art can be used both indoors or out. The sculptures have a clear enamel coat when shipped to you~ To maintain this original look you will need to spray the sculpture with a clear enamel every year and a half~ We use our local hardware brand Ace Clear Enamel spray. When used outdoors weather will wear away the enamel coating over time~ Many people prefer the natural aging process which is a rust~ Or to maintain the original look give the sculpture a light spray front and back with the clear enamel~ These sculptures are made of a heavy gauge steel so will not rust away~ If your sculpture does rust or you have forgotten to spray it, do not worry, just lightly sand the rusted areas, then spray it with clear enamel front and back. Now you are good to go for another year!

    It's Cactus Metal Art Haiti

     

    Haiti metal art (06:03)
    IN THE BEGINNING… There was a railroad blacksmith in the village of Croix-des-Bouquets with a little time on his hands, a few simple tools, a hefty supply of scrap metal, and boundless imagination. Georges Liataud saw possibility where others saw refuse. Taking discarded steel drums, he cut off the tops and bottoms and flattened out the sides with a hammer to create a smooth surface. Visualizing his design - crosses at first, later images of village life and Haitian culture – he chalked it onto the prepared metal. Then, with a hammer and chisel, he cut along the chalk marks and the sculpture took its shape. With dies and more hammering, the full character of the sculpture came forth in details applied blow by blow.
