Talking with Fish, Mermaid, Artistic Haiti Metal Steel Drum Art 17" x 10"
$32.95

It's easy to hang your sculpture with just a few nails. Place the first nail within two design elements that are touching or notched. Then use a second and possibly a third nail, if the sculpture is large, to straighten and secure the piece against the wall. You want the nails to "disappear" into the sculpture - and they will. Like magic... Worried that your metal sculpture will rust if exposed to the elements? Don't be. Your sculpture comes with a weather-proof coating that will wear off over time, but you can protect it easily by spending 5 minutes once a year to spray it with clear enamel available at your local hardware store.The traditional Haitian method of creating metal sculptures from discarded oil drums has changed very little since the technique was first developed by Georges Liataud in the 1950's. To begin, the drums are burned out, cleaned up, sanded down and pounded flat. Next, the artist chalks his intended design onto the prepared metal and begins the heavy and tedious work of cutting and detailing, using only a hammer and chisel. Finally, the sculpture is sealed with a weather-proof finish, so that the sculpture may be displayed easily indoors or out.
