It's Cactus Metal Art Haiti

Angel People, Religious Haitian Metal Craftsmanship, One-of-a-Kind 23 x 23

Mermaids are matrons of enchantment, entreating sailors with beguiling beauty, grace and mesmerizing melodies. Seductive and charming, all those in contact with mermaids are subject to their persuasion.

The traditional Haitian method of creating metal sculptures from discarded oil drums has changed very little since the technique was first developed by Georges Liataud in the 1950's.  To begin, the drums are burned out, cleaned up, sanded down and pounded flat.  Next, the artist chalks his intended design onto the prepared metal and begins the heavy and tedious work of cutting and detailing, using only a hammer and chisel. Finally, the sculpture is sealed with a weather-proof finish, so that the sculpture may be displayed easily indoors or out.
