Crossing Trees Metal Wall Art Handmade in Haiti From Recycled Drums 15" X 15"
Brand: it's cactus - metal art haiti
Color: It is a varying color. A mixture and a blend of hues. dark black steel, browns and pewter tones. It changes depending on the lighting.
Firing, sanding, pounding, chiseling, cutting and shaping, Haitian artists fashion each beautiful recycled metal sculpture by hand. It is a tradition well-established in the village of Croix-des-Bouquets, as fathers have taught sons and neighbor has taught neighbor for four generations
A few nails and a hammer are all you'll need to hang your sculpture. Look for a place where the design is joined or notched and put the first nail there. Use a second and possibly a third nail, if the piece is large, in other joined or notched design elements within the sculpture to straighten and secure it to the wall. Make sure that you avoid placing a nail into an eye or mouth, as that will draw attention to the nail. You want the nails to "disappear" into the piece.
Worried that this sculpture may rust? Don't be. A weathered patina isn't necessarily a bad thing, but if that's not the look you're going for, take five minutes to apply a spray-on clear coat enamel once a year to keep your outdoor sculpture looking the same as the day you bought it.
Details: Two trees crossing can be symbolic of two lives intertwining. A lovely, meaningful gift idea for an upcoming anniversary or wedding. Signed by artist Samuel Brutus
