This Haitian Bale of Turtles Recycled Steel Drum Wall Art is great for indoor or outdoor use. It features a bunch of sea turtles gliding through tropical waters. The texture of the sculpture mimics a real turtle's skin and shell pattern. It is made from a recycled steel oil drum, which is flattened and then cut out with a mallet and chisel. If used outside the sculpture will eventually turn into a beautiful patina. However, if you prefer the original finish you can spray it every 18-24 months with a clear gloss varnish which can be found at any art or hardware store.
