Pair Of Square Tree Of Life Haitian Steel Drum.
Crafted from recycled 55-gallon steel drums by local artisans in Haiti, these stunning art pieces are indeed one-of-a-kind! The process of turning sheets of metal into beautiful art is all done by hand. Steel drums used to transport oil into the capital of Haiti are cut, and the oil is burned off to clean the metal and then flattened to create stunning upcycled art. Suitable for Indoor or Outdoor Use.

Given the handmade nature of this product, please allow for minor variations. As the metal is recovered from recycled oil drums and colored through a burning process, it will vary slightly in coloration. Typically the piece has a darkened steel patina. If handpainted, exact colors may vary, which speaks to the one-of-a-kind nature of each piece. Each piece of metal art, whether painted or natural, is coated with a layer of clear coat to help protect the metal.
