A stunning peacock, with beautiful detailing. Use the scroll over function to fully appreciate the intricate cutwork that went into this piece. Hand-crafted in Haiti.
The art of handcrafting metal sculptures that has been handed down for several generations provides a sustainable living for over 100 families in a small village in Haiti. The work begins with a recycled 55 gallon steel drum. The steel drum is prepared for the sculpture by removing the top, stuffing it with dried banana leaves and straw and finally igniting it to burn off any residue and paint. Once the barrel is cool, it is pounded into a flat sheet and prepared for the sculpture. The artist draws his intended shape on the metal and begins his work with a hammer and chisel.

Well packaged with care and delicately made. Shipped quickly arrived in grassy condition. The story behind the art was not why I purchased it, but definitely added to my appreciation.
