Hand painted metal turtle wall hanging measures 11" x 20". Tropical metal wall art.

The turtle design is handcrafted from a flattened, recycled steel drum at our workshop in Haiti and hand painted. It is finished with a protective varnish.

Both ends of the steel drum are removed and placed inside of the remaining cylinder along with scrap paper, dried banana or sugar cane leaves. It is set on fire, to burn off any paint or residue. When cooled, the drum is cut down the side and flattened out to create a "metal canvas" of approximately 3' x 6', upon which the design is drawn. Using hammer, chisel and various primitive tools, the shape is cut and the various decorative patterns are pounded into the metal, creating a unique and treasured piece of primitive art. The finished design is coated with a protective finish. Can be hung indoors or outdoors. .

Photos of the process are shown. We start with a large, recycled steel drum. Burn off the paint and residue, Flatten the drum. Draw the pattern and cut it with hammer and chisel. It is then hand painted and finished with a protective clear finish.
