Two little birds enjoy the protection of growing roots and leaves. The connected roots and branched represent the circle of life. Display this unique tree made from an upcycled oil drum on a wall at home or on the fence of your backyard.
- Made in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti
- Made from recycled steel oil drums
- Made by Andre Michel
- 23" Diameter
- Each piece is coated in a protective weather-resistant varnish. Metal art displayed outside will result in a rusted patina. If this is not a desired outcome it is recommended to annually spray the metal art with a clear gloss spray varnish (like Rust-Oleum) to keep it protected.
Artisans' designs are inspired by nature and Haitian culture. Patterns are first traced with white chalk onto flattened oil drums. The metal is cut and shaped using a hammer and chisel. Each detail is thoughtfully placed by the artist's skillful hand strokes. Be sure to look for the artist's name proudly chiseled into his or her metal sculpture.
