Celtic Tree of Life

The “Celtic Tree of Life” from Haiti is a unique sculptural blend of two vastly different cultures - and it works!

The roots of this tree are configured in Celtic infinity knots, which, like the "tree of life" itself, represent endlessness. Endliess life. Infinite love. In Haiti, trees are life-giving. New reforrestation efforts throughout the country have resulted in restored watersheds, reduced erosion, and rejuvinated natural habitats. This sculpture characterizes the universal timelessness of Nature as it is understood on both sides of the world.

Celtic Tree of Life Handmade in Haiti

In its many renditions, the Tree of Life is a tremendously popular and iconic image. This sculptural version, is graceful, elegant, and fits into many decorative schemes. It’s easy to love

Though this art piece is meant for display indoors or out, be aware that the protective, weather-proof coating will wear off over time. To keep your sculpture looking just like it did the day you bought it, take five minutes once a year to apply a spray-on clear enamel coating.

Tree of Life Metal Wall Art Sculpture

How to hang your tree:

A few nails and a hammer are all you'll need to hang your sculpture. Look for a place where the design is joined or notched and put the first nail there. Use a second and possibly a third nail, if the piece is large, in other joined or notched design elements within the sculpture to straighten and secure it to the wall. Make sure that you avoid placing a nail into an eye or mouth, as that will draw attention to the nail. You want the nails to "disappear" into the piece.

Steel Drum Oil Barrels made into beautiful art sculptures

The clanging sound of hammers striking chisels is a constant music.

To begin, the artist chalks his design onto the metal. Chisels, dies and a large hammer are used to cut and shape the piece, giving it form and texture. When the highly intricate and physically demanding work is complete and the artist is satisfied with his work, he signs his name boldly with a small chisel and applies a clear, weather-proof coating. The result is a wonderful, fair trade piece of handcrafted art.

This piece of folk art is the work of many hands.

Laborers begin the process by burning out the residue from discarded steel drums, cutting off the tops and bottoms, splitting down them down the side, sanding and pounding them flat. Next the artist takes over, drawing his design onto the prepared canvas like finish work.

Our artists prosper through their own hard work, your purchases, and our adherence to fair trade practices.

Thank you for your interest and support!
