- Hand-crafted from cast-off 55 gallon steel drums, artists in Haiti follow four generations of tradition in metal sculpture.

- Natural color variations from dark silver to brown rustic tones.
- Fair trade isn't just a good idea - it's the only way we do business.

Tree of life wall decor. Earth-friendly Metal Sculptures-Haitian artisans recycle 55-gallon metal drums into this lustrous wall hanging. Detailed hammered cut work celebrates the natural world. The artist first visualizes his design, often taking inspiration from his culture and natural surroundings. Next, he chalks his design onto the flattened metal and then, using only a hammer and chisel, gives the sculpture form and dimension. The result is a unique piece of folk art, perfect for home or garden use.
