moreFabulous both indoors and out, this is a museum-collectible quality steel drum sculpture (fer découpé) by well-known Haitian artist Damien Paul (b. 1941) depicting three birds encircling a mule (24" diameter). Excellent condition (always kept indoors); beautiful patina. Paul joined the celebrated Centre d'Art in 1969 as a sculptor, drawing primarily upon the unworldly images of Voodoo traditions as his primary theme. The Haitian oil drum metal art of Damien Paul is highly sought-after, particularly in light of Paul's transition to painting in recent decades, and thus has been able to sustain a higher market value than that of his contemporaries (e.g. the brothers Janvier and Seresier Louis-Juste). Purchased directly from the artist by my late grandmother in the mid '70s; inherited piece, guaranteed provenance. less
