This Haitian Sea Turtle Vertical Recycled Steel Drum Wall Art is great for indoor or outdoor use. The seven sea turtles intertwine with the seaweed above the ocean floor. 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.
Haitian art form that began in the late 50's
Design/pattern is chalked out on a flattened, recycled steel oil drum and then cut out with a mallet and chisel
Indoor/Outdoor use (to prevent natural patina spray with a clear gloss varnish every 18 to 24 months)
This piece is uniquely hand crafted by a Haitian steel drum artist and will vary slightly from the picture above.
