Group of Dragonflies 6.5" x 19.5"
Hanging your art is easy once you know how. Choose a point where the design element is joined or notched and use a nail to hang it on the wall. Use a second and a third nail (if necessary) within other design elements to straighten and secure the piece. A word of caution: Don't place a nail in an eye or mouth. A viewer's eye will go straight there and straight to the nail. You want the nails to "disappear" into the sculpture. (And they will!)
Maintaining the glossy appearance of this metal sculpture is a breeze. If displayed outdoors, apply a clear, spray-on enamel coating once a year. That's it!
Fair trade is the name of the game. We play no other way.
Following four generations of tradition, each piece of Haitian metal art is made entirely by hand with simple tools. Starting with a cast-off steel drum, the metal is cleaned, sanded, and pounded flat. From there, the artist chalks his design onto the metal and then begins the heavy, tedious work of cutting out the pattern with a hammer and chisel and giving the piece detail and dimension. Finally, he applies a clear-coat to the piece, which protects it and makes it perfectly suited for indoor or outdoor display
