St. Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of animals and the environment. This metal art sculpture made from a recycled oil drum reflects a tender moment between St. Francis and birds, a part of the natural world he loved and cared for dearly.
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.
