Meet the Artisans
When you visit Croix des Bouquets, the area of town known for Haitian metal art in the capital of Port-Au-Prince, you are met with a cacophony of tink, tink, tink as ball peen hammers strike sheets of steel. The sheets are cut from steel drums colored by oil and other liquids the drums at one time held. The process of turning sheets of metal into beautiful wall art is all done by hand, from cutting holes that become edges of trees and leaves, to accenting each lizard with a texture of scales, to painting or lacquering the final design. The artists are proud of their work, signing the pieces on the back side, leaving a raised, reversed signature on the front.

My wall hanging was put up immediately upon receipt. Very pleased.
The Tree of Life Heart is vibrantly colored and exactly what I was expecting. Shipping was timely and the item was in perfect shape.
We love it, its a reminder of our weddingcard, the poem told about two trees, growing in the same light, don't grow out off shape. And the eight birds have a beautiful meaning too, to us.
I think this little sign will remind a mother to give her baby a reason to sleep in heavenly peace. This is a tasteful, well-crafted reminder.
