Painted metal turtle is available in 2 sizes 16" x 21" and 29" x 34". Please make your choice above.
This turtle wall hanging was hand cut from a 55 gallon upcycled - recycled steel drum, in Haiti, using a hammer and chisel. The various details of the gecko were pounded out into a bas-relief, so that the details are more visible. A rust preventative solution is applied to the steel. The turtle is then hand painted in rich colors. It is finished with clear varnish. Similar to the painting of the Mexican talavera pottery pieces. A wonderful garden art design.
Upcycling is the process of taking something old or used and making it new again and of a greater value than it was originally. This is what we have done with the steel drum material used in this piece.
Please view some of our photos showing the process of converting a recycled steel drum into a great piece of art for your home. This is done in our workshop in Haiti, where we have worked and lived for the past 30 years.
