Rooted Tree of Life Sculpture
Our Rooted Tree of Life Sculpture is a gorgeous example of Haitian Metal Art with an unconventional backstory. This spectacular piece was handmade by an amazing master metal sculptor named Jean Roosevelt Beauchard and this piece is signed. The detail in Beauchard's work is phenomenal and it truly is what sets his work apart from most other Haitian metal artists. His penchant for detail is amazing.
Using just a chisel and hammer, this intricate Rooted Tree of Life Sculpture is carved entirely by hand and simple tools. The reaching roots and circular frame complete this arresting, Fair Trade Oil Drum Art. Master artisans in Haiti upcycle 55 gallon steel oil drums, bringing out the beauty in something that would have otherwise been discarded.
All of our Haitian Metal Art comes from one village in Haiti- Croix-des-Bouquets. Our metal artisan partners have access to the global marketplace through their work in Fair Trade, providing infinitely more opportunities for sales of their work and therefore more opportunities to give back to their community.

Rooted Tree of Life Sculpture measures 34" diameter and is finished with a protective clear coat for indoor or outdoor use.
