Haitian Drum Art

Haitian Drum Art is made from the ubiquitous drums that oil and all other goods are shipped in to Haiti.  The artists cut the sides of the drums and pound them flat, then cut them into the shape that defines the art.  The art form is centered in the village of Croix-des-Bouquets.  The objects are made by hand with chisel, hammer, and cutting tools.

Caring for your pieces:  outdoor, spray with a light penetrating oil.  Indoor, apply a clear varnish, or do nothing and live with the rust.
