Recycled Metal Wall Hanging Nativity
17" W x 25" Tall
To create pieces such as this wall hanging, Haitian cut metal artisans cut open 55-gallon drums, hammer them flat, and then mark designs on the black metal with chalk. Using a hammer and chisel, they pound and cut through the metal to make designs. Intricate painting adds to the striking design.
Among Haiti’s most original art forms, this type of ironwork began in Croix des Bouquets, a small village outside Port-au-Prince. In the early 1930s Georges Liautaud formed imaginative cemetery crosses from recycled metal cut from oil drums. An artistic tradition has grown from those humble beginnings and now the village has become a center for this art, with more than 60 workshops.
