Remember that nature is beautiful both above and below the surface. To make the Roots and Leaves Cut Metal Art 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 Haitis 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 Liatauds imaginative cemetery crosses crafted from recycled metal.
