  • Description

    Vibrantly colored birds dance through the branches of a graceful tree while the sun shines in the hand‒painted Song Birds Cut Metal Wall Art. To make this lively 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.
