Daily Life In Haiti Wall Hanging - Women
This intricate and unique wall hanging was created by Josnel Bruno of Haiti. In a unique Haitian technique, Josnel and his studio artisans hand craft recycled oil drums into decorative works of art. Recycled oil drums are first burned off to remove paint and other byproducts from previous use. Then Josnel cuts the intricate pattern inspired by the elements of their everyday life out of the flattened oil drum. Hammers create dimension and delicate patterning as accents. Finally, the piece is sanded, varnished, brushed, and varnished again to achieve the rich patina.
