Our Lady of Guadalupe

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 classic Blessed Virgin Mary displays via an back-mounted easel.

In his free time, Stanley Brutus likes to doodle.  Learning metal sculpture at the age of five, Stanley knows the importance of good design.  Doodling helps him get there. "But," he says, "the hardest thing about metal sculpture is coming up with a good design.  It is fun to draw, but you need to imagine what design will fit an item.  It is longtime work to make a good design."
