Product Description

This incredible turtle wall art makes the perfect addition to your decor! It fits in beautifully for a study, living area, bedroom, or even a baby's nursery. Place it on a deep blue or turquoise wall and it'll appear to be swimming the day away.

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.
