Whimsical Unique are two words to describe this wonderful Haitian Metal Art. A Goat Riding a Bike with Goat Handle bars and a coffin on the back~ Unique stories and meanings throughout this sculpture by Jean Eugene Remy 

Metal drum art is the sustaining life source of Croix-des-Bouquets, the town outside of Port-au-Prince where the tradition of metal art was born. Companies from the capital used to dump empty metal drums in Croix-des-Bouquets, with other industrial waste. In the 1940’s a local blacksmith, Georges Liautaud, took the metal drums and began combining them with iron bars to make elaborate metal crosses. His ingenuity turned waste into something useful that has become a new uniquely Haitian craft tradition.
