Haitian Metal Art is one of the most vibrant forms of Folk Art in the world. These evocative metals depict traditional symbols, Spirits, people and even animals that are beloved in Haitian culture.
First, skilled artisans hand-cut their "canvas" from recycled materials, such as stripped and cleaned oil barrels. They then create their own special design, and meticulously stipple and carve it into the metal sheet. The level of detail, skill and love that goes into each piece is truly breathtaking!
