Handmade veve wall artwork made from recycled steel barrels. This metal sculpture is meant for display indoors or out, but if you choose to display yours outside, be aware that the protective, weather-proof coating will wear off over time. To keep your sculpture looking just like it did the day you bought it, take five minutes once a year to apply a spray-on clear enamel coating.
Erzulie Dantor is a dark-skinned, hardworking woman with tough country ways. She is fiercely independent. She is the goddess of romance and passion. Despite her wild nature, she is seen as very maternal; Erzulie Dantor is the protector of children and women.
Firing, sanding, pounding, chiseling, cutting and shaping, Haitian artists fashion each beautiful recycled metal sculpture by hand. It is a tradition well-established in the village of Croix-des-Bouquets, as fathers have taught sons and neighbor has taught neighbor for four generations
Voodoo Wall Hanging Collection from Haiti
A few nails and a hammer are all you’ll need to hang your sculpture. Look for a place where the design is joined or notched and put the first nail there. Use a second and possibly a third nail, if the piece is large, in other joined or notched design elements within the sculpture to straighten and secure it to the wall. Make sure that you avoid placing a nail into an eye or mouth, as that will draw attention to the nail. You want the nails to “disappear” into the piece.
