#644 Three Kings Wall Art

Acquired 2013

From Port au Prince, Haiti, this unique wall piece is made by artisan, Jhonson Augustin, from a recycled oil drum. Jhonson pounds the metal and uses a hammer and chisel to punch the flattened metal into his creative designs. Then the pieces are elegantly hand painted.The wall piece is 25” x 17” and colorfully depicts the Haitian people. The three kings are dominant showering their gifts upon Baby Jesus as He rests below with Mary and Joseph and the donkey surrounding Him. The Dove of Peace flies above the three kings. Purchased from Ten Thousand Villages through World Crafts, I found this piece while on our FOTC tour of the Amish country, in Kidron, Ohio, October 2013. Purchase price, $110.00.
