In Haitian Oil Drum art, the designs are chalked out on flattened steel oil drums and then cut out with a mallet and chisel. Characteristics of these metal sculptures include areas that are concave or convex, intricate patterns are created by hammering in "bumps" of different heights.

THis was my 4th or 5th one of these hammered pieces from Haiti and all have been very well-received as gifts.
