- This sculpture has been finished with a clear enamel coating, which will protect it from the elements. However, if it is displayed outdoors, we recommend applying a spray-on clear coat in order to maintain it's fresh-out-of the box look. Five minutes once a year is all it takes. Easy!
- 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.
- Hanging your metal art is easy, once you know how. Choose a place it within two design elements that are touching or notched toward the center of the piece and drive a nail into the wall at that point. Using a second and possibly a third nail, place those in other notched areas within the design to secure it firmly. Avoid placing nails in the eyes or mouth. A viewer's eye will go straight to those elements and a nail there will draw attention to itself. You don't want the nails to become part of the details - you want them to "disappear."
Details: Made entirely by hand, the cut work and detailing are executed using only a hammer and chisel. Haitian Mermaid Collectible Art!
