Product Description

The verse John 13:34 set in the shape of a cross is a beautiful reminder as we start every day. Cut and contoured from steel drum, it would look wonderful in an entryway, living room, or den.

Haiti has one of the highest unemployment rates in the Western Hemisphere. While jobs may not be plentiful, old steel drums are. Artisans cut these drums down one side and roll them out flat. They hand sketch the designs, then cut them out with tin snips. Depending on the design, each piece is then hand pounded, hand painted, or both. The environment of the island is completely devastated. Due to deforestation, less than 5% of the land now has tree coverage. Without these trees, birds are also scarce. Through the purchase of this sculpture, coffee trees are planted. As the trees grow, they not only offer income, but also forest protection that is slowly bringing back the birds. Since every piece is made by hand, each one will have slight variations making them one of a kind pieces of art.
