The Hamsa Hand (or Hand of Fatima) is a symbol of unity and protection, thought to protect one from evil. Haitian artisans delicately chiseled the details of the open hand and evil eye to create this lovely piece of art. It may also be hung on the wall or add a string to hang or rest on a shelf to make a nice display.
Crafted from recycled 55-gallon steel drums by village artisans in Haiti, these stunning pieces of art are truly one-of-a-kind! The process of turning sheets of metal into beautiful art is all done by hand. Steel drums used to transport oil into the capital of Haiti are cut, the oil is burned off to clean the metal, and then flattened in order to create stunning, upcycled art. Suitable for Indoor or Outdoor Use.
Type: Metal Wall Art
Materials: Upcycled Steel Metal
Finish: Clear Coat
Dimensions: Approx. 14 inch
Care: If displaying outdoors it is recommended to spray with a clear coat once or twice a year, as prolonged exposure to the elements will cause rust.
Hanging Instructions: To hang metal art simply use pin head nails in the many nooks and spaces available in the design. If nails are shiny, you may want to darken heads with a black marker to help nails visually disappear.
Given the handmade nature of this product please allow for minor variations. As the metal is recovered from recycled oil drums and colored through a burning process it will vary slightly in coloration. Typically the piece has a darkened steel patina. Each piece of metal art whether painted or natural is coated with a layer of clear lacquer to help protect the metal.
