Hand pounded recycled steel drum curly tree of life, measuring approximately 12" in diameter. In seconds, life as they knew it changed for the people around Port-au-Prince, Haiti as a massive earthquake struck . Years later, rebuilding has been slow and food and water are a struggle. This cooperative lost their facility in the earthquake, so they popped up tents and were back to work within 45 days. The artisans receive a fair and stable income for their work, and enjoy lunch together at the cooperative. Steel drums and their lids are cut with tin snips, then hand pounded to give each piece a little dimension. The butterflies are then painted in pinks, blues, and purples. 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.
