    Croix des Bouquets Handmade 12x9-inch Landing Bird w/Plumage Metal Sculpture Wall Art Hanging Haiti

    $46.98


    This piece of Metal Art features a bird with wings in this traditional Haitian design. Hand cut and embossed, this piece is 12 by 9 inches. Meet the Artisans When you visit Croix des Bouquets, the area of town known for Haitian metal art in the capital of Port-Au-Prince, you are met with a cacophony of tink, tink, tink as ball peen hammers strike sheets of steel. The sheets are cut from steel drums colored by oil and other liquids the drums at one time held. The process of turning sheets of metal into beautiful wall art is all done by hand, from cutting holes that become edges of trees and leaves, to accenting each lizard with a texture of scales, to painting or lacquering the final design. The artists are proud of their work, signing the pieces on the back side, leaving a raised, reversed signature on the front. åÊ
