Tree of Life art has played a cultural and religious significance to people throughout the world; it symbolizes a link between heaven and earth, with branches that reach into the sky and roots that are grounded deep in the earth. This metal wall art is cut from recycled steel drums that were once used for transporting goods into the Haitian country and has been upcycled into unique designs that honor the tradition of the culture. The process of turning sheets of metal into beautiful art is all done by hand, from cutting holes that become edges of trees and leaves, to accent designs, creating a unique piece of primitive art. Metal art may be painted or in its natural steel state; all have been treated with a protective finish. Many finished pieces are signed by the artist. Any minor variances in the art simply attest to the handcrafted nature and individuality of this beautiful wall accent. Measures 23 inches in diameter
Care: Suitable for indoor or outdoor use. If left outdoors, it is recommended to reapply a spray-on clear coat protective finish once a year.
