Si ou ka Pale - 24"x16.5"
This 24"x16.5" piece is Haitian for, "If you can talk, you can sing. If you can walk, you can dance. If you can imagine, you can do anything."
Hand made Haitian metal art. Using a recycled 55-gallon oil drums, Haitian artists cut and flatten the oil drum. Then with chalk, the design is drawn onto the metal sheet. Using a hammer, chisel and various primitive tools, the shape is cut and the various decorative patterns are pounded into the metal, creating a unique piece of amazing art. The finished design is signed by the artist and coated with a protective finish.
*Note: No two pieces are alike. When receiving your pieces they all vary slightly in size and color and some have more Haitian accents to them then others. Some are more rustic and others more silver depending on the oil barrel used.
