Whispering Garden Metal Tree with birds, Indoor and Outdoor Wall Decor 23" x 23" inch.
Haitian metal art sculptures are made from recycled oild barrels. What is old becomes new again!
Barrels that have been cleaned up and pounded flat are then used as a "canvas" upon which the artist draws the design.
Then, with a hammer and chisel the cutwork and detailing begins. Metal sculpture has generally been undertaken by men, but increasingly, women are making a place for themselves in the field.
With it's branches reaching skyward, and it's roots probing deep into the ground, the Tree of Life represents the link between heaven and earth and everlasting life. It is universally recognizable, appearing in cultures as diverse as the ancient tribes of Israel and the royal courts of France. It's graceful expression is transcendent and timeless.
There is no designated hanger for this sculpture. It doesn't need one! Two or three well-placed nails are all you need to hang your piece. To begin, find a point near the center, say just above the trunk, where two design elements meet and pound the first nail there. Use the second nail to give it the proper angle, and use the third nail, if necessary to secure the piece firmly to the wall. You'll find the nails "disappear" into the piece - like magic!
This Tree of Life comes with a weather-proof coating, but in time rusting can occur. That isn't necessarily a bad thing - some people like the rustic look - but if you are not one of them, take heart. Spending 5 minutes once a year to spray the front and back of the sculpture with a a clear coat enamel will keep it looking as shiny and new as the day you bought it. https://www.etsy.com/shop/ArtUnderTheTree?ref=hdr_shop_menu
