This six-piece hand-crafted Nativity set is a beautiful work of art! And we always love a Nativity scene that has moveable parts. It is hands-on! It immediately calls for interactions and deeper thinking around the narrative it depicts. This set is made from recycled metals and won’t easily be lost or broken. We’re hoping it becomes a family heirloom to be passed down for generations!
The Steel Drum Art of Haiti has been famous for decades throughout the world. Metal from recycled steel drums is cut, flattened, and put into a fire to be made malleable. Then the artisan traces the pattern onto the flat piece, and with chisel and hammer in hand, starts the tapping that cuts away all that is not the image. These particular pieces are made in the village of Croix des Bouquet, which has come to be known as the capital of metal art in Haiti!
