Gecko Oil Drum Art


In Haitian Oil Drum art, the designs are chalked out on flattened steel oil drums and then cut out with a mallet and chisel. Characteristics of these metal sculptures include areas that are concave or convex, intricate patterns are created by hammering in "bumps" of different heights.

A tail of two geckos and a dragonfly who better get and go if he doesn't want to be lunch!

Created by Schwegger Beauchard.
