This Haitian Bird & Tree Arch Metal Wall Sculpture features an intricately detailed tree, with birds perched upon its textured tree branches. This unique piece of art is handmade from a recycled steel oil drum, which is flattened and then cut out with a mallet and chisel. This wall hanging can be used both inside and out. 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.
