Small Noah's Ark Handmade in Haiti 14.5" x 14.5"

Haiti
$32.95

Noah's Ark holiday home decor.  

Incredible 3-D detailing characterizes the work in this delightful rendition of Noah's ark. Created and signed by the artist, Romel Balan of Haiti.

Each unique fair trade metal sculpture is hand- cut from recycled 55- gallon steel drums. To begin the process, both ends of the drum are removed and placed inside of the remaining cylinder, along with scrap paper and dried banana or sugar cane leaves. Next, the contents are set ablaze to burn off any paint or residue and strengthen the metal. When cooled, the drums are sliced down the side and flattened, effectively creating a "steel canvas" of approximately 3' x 6', upon which the design is drawn. Using a hammer, chisel and various other primitive tools, the desired image is cut out and decorative patterns are pounded into the metal. Finally, a weather-proof finish coating is applied, making these fascinating pieces of folk art perfect for displaying indoors or out.
