Unemployment in Haiti, the poorest country of the American hemisphere, is variously estimated at between 60 and 80-percent. What is Worldstock?

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. What is Worldstock?
