Description

Cut metal dove carries an olive branch, a hope for peace. To make this wall hanging, artisans cut open 55-gallon drums, pound them flat, and then mark designs with chalk. Using a chisel, they cut through the metal to make designs. Among Haiti’s most original art forms is the cut metal work from Croix des Bouquets, a small village outside of Port-au-Prince. The tradition began in the early 1930s with Georges Liataud’s imaginative cemetery crosses crafted from recycled metal.

  • I am so in love with this dove of peace
    . . . . .

    I have had my eye on this dove for a while hoping to receive it as a gift. Well, since I didn't get it as a gift I used my birthday gift card from Ten Thousand Villages to buy it for myself. This dove is more beautiful than I had imagined. Very nice size, beautiful hand buffed finish to the metal...

  • Lovely Dove

This dove is more beautiful than I had imagined. Very nice size, beautiful hand buffed finish to the metal, and the artist even signed it! I can't say enough good things about the pleasure this dove brings to me when I look at it on my wall. A beautiful piece of art.
