It's Cactus Metal Art Haiti

Giraffe Wall Décor, Safari Animal Plaques, Handmade from Recycled Material, Haitian Hanging Sculptures, Indoor Outdoor 23 Inches Round

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.
