Haitian Metal Drum Tabletop Nativity with Shooting Blue Stars
WEIGHT: 1.5 lb
This unique tabletop nativity scene combines the Christmas story with a cultural flair from Haiti. The artisan depicts the nativity scene under a starry night. Meticulously crafted by hand, it measures 11 inches tall. Crafted from recycled 55-gallon steel drums by village artisans in Haiti, these stunning pieces of art are truly one-of-a-kind! 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. Type: Metal Table Decor Colors: Painted Materials: Upcycled Steel Metal Dimensions: Approx. 11 inches tall Care: Wipe with soft cloth. 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. Each piece of art is coated with a layer of clear coat to help protect the metal.
