Product Description

Hand pounded recycled steel drum angel with nativity scene, measuring approximately 12" tall. In seconds, life as they knew it changed for the people around Croix des Bouquets, Haiti as a massive earthquake struck . Years later, rebuilding has been slow and food and water are a struggle. The cycle of poverty shows little signs of ending, but the first step to make that happen starts with education. The average age that a girl drops out of school is 7 years old, and a full 78% of students drop out after primary school. Only 1% will graduate from college. A solid income can help make an education more likely, making their artisanry so important. Among the most original of Haiti's art forms is iron work. There are more than 60 workshops and 300 artisans using recycled metal from oil drums to create pieces of art. Steel drums and their lids are cut with tin snips, then hand pounded and chiseled to give each piece a little dimension. As a final step, certain pieces are painted in the bright colors the island is well known for. Since this is an actual steel drum that has been repurposed, some discoloration and age marks may be present and only add to the individuality of your art.
