Product Details

: 1027-P-MK011693
This ornament is handmade in Haiti from scrap steel oil drums and depicts the nativity scene. Hand-crafted from recycled 55-gallon steel drums by village artisans in Haiti; treasures that are truly one-of-a-kind! Each ornament has a loop for hanging on a tree. Dimensions: Approx.2.5 x 2 inches. Colors: Metallic Materials: Upcycled Steel Metal Finish: Lacquer Care: If displaying outdoors it is recommended to spray with a clear lacquer once or twice a year, as prolonged exposure to the elements will cause rust. Suitable for Indoor or Outdoor Use Story Behind the Art 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, the oil is burned off to clean the metal, and then flattened in order to create stunning, upcycled art.​​ 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 lacquer to help protect the metal.
