This bright sun wall hanging was hand cut from a 55 gallon recycled steel drum, in Haiti, using a hammer and chisel. The various details of the sun were pounded out into a bas-relief, so that the details are more visible. A rust preventative solution is applied to the steel. The sun is then hand painted in rich colors. It is finished with clear varnish. Similar to the painting of the Mexican talavera pottery pieces. A wonderful garden art design.
We have included photos showing part of the process of turning a recycled steel drum into a beautiful art piece for your home.
