Mermaid Family Haitian Metal Art, Recycled Oil Drum 34" X 18"

Hand-crafted from recycled metal in Haiti. It's easy to hang your sculpture with just a few nails. Place the first nail within two design elements that are touching or notched. Then use a second and possibly a third nail, if the sculpture is large, to straighten and secure the piece against the wall. Just make sure that you don't place a nail in an eye or a mouth. A viewer's attention will go there quite naturally and therefore, directly to the nail. You don't want that! The riveted fin will be pressed flat when it is packed for shipping. Don't be afraid to bend it out a little bit to take advantage of it's 3-D aspect. Let that dolphin swim! If this sculpture will be displayed outdoors, here's a tip for keeping it looking as fresh and beautiful as the day you bought it: Simply take five minutes to apply a coat of clear, spray-on enamel from the hardware store. Once a year will do it!

A well-crafted piece of original folk art from Haiti. This is a hand-crafted original piece of Haitian metal art, made from discarded steel drums and brought to you through fair trade practices. It is created in traditional fashion; the artist utilizing simple hand tools for both the cutwork on the recycled metal and also the intricate detailing. A protective, weather-proof coating has been applied, making it suitable for display indoors or out. Though it is protected with a weather-proof finish, this sculpture will rust over time, if exposed to outdoor weather. To prevent this from happening, grab a can of spray on enamel at the hardware store and go to it. Once a year should be plenty. It's a snap! It's easy to hang your sculpture with just a few nails.
