Sea Turtles, Sea life, Turtles and Fish, Ocean Reef, Metal Art, Fair Trade Haiti 7.5" X 18"

Haiti
$32.95

The Life Aquatic! Fish and turtles swimming in the briny blue sea create a scene that is ideal for the beach house sportsman's den, or poolside! Hand-crafted from recycled metal in Haiti.

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.
