Christmas is a time for all nations to celebrate peace. The French word for peace is beautifully depicted in this cut metal wall hanging from Haiti. The tradition of Haitian cut metal art began in the early 1930s with Georges Liatauds imaginative cemetery crosses crafted from recycled metal. Artisans cut open 55-gallon drums, hammer them flat, and then mark designs on the black metal with chalk. The design is then carved and finished using chisels and other simple hand tools.
