Size: 6-8″wide x 11″ high
       

The artist begins with a 55 gallon oil barrel which they split open and flatten out as a large “sheet of canvas”~ He first sketches out the design with chalk then cuts the steel using only a hammer and a nail~ The round sculptures are made from the lid or bottom of a 55 gallon barrel~
       

Each sculpture is signed by the artist ~
The sculptures are recycled, hand made and beautiful~ Beyond Borders is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation
       

These sculptures are great indoor or out~ For outdoor use the varnish will wear away over time and the sculpture will begin to rust naturally or you can maintain the original look by spraying it with a clear enamel every couple of years~
