Circle of Birds, Haitian Metal  Art One of a kind Wall Sculpture 23" x 23"

Recycled metal oil drum art was born in the town of Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti, a town not far from the capital Port-au-Prince.   Around mid-century, Georges Liautard, an ingenious blacksmith, used the metal from oil drums to fashion crosses  for the local cemetery.  In the 1950s, DeWitt Peters, an American artist who was working with Haitian artists, saw these crosses and encouraged Georges to create decorate art.  From this collaboration, an art form was born.
