Climbing the Wall

Haiti

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.

This gecko is beautifully decorated with butterflies.  Created by Simon Gerald.
