Mermaid Designs from Metal Drums - Mermaid Wall Decor
Haitian steel drum mermaid art for the sophisticated art collector. Metal sculpture wall hangings handcrafted from recycled steel oil drums.
Outstanding mermaid wall art. Appreciation for the amazing hand metalwork on each of these mermaid designs deepens when you consider the time and unusual technique behind the creation of these hand sculptured Haitian metal drum art designs. The extremely talented metal artist in Haiti begins with a crude, recycled 55 gallon oil drum and the simple tools of a common hammer and chisel. A beautiful evolution from a rejected oil drum to a wonderful piece of art. Pin It

*For many centuries, mermaids have appeared in folklore and many religions around the world .
* In 1493, Christopher Columbus, was sailing the ocean near Haiti, and reported in his journal the site of three mermaids in the distance. Upon viewing them up close, he wrote that these sea maidens were “not as pretty as they are depicted, for somehow in the face they look like men." Scientists believe that Columbus probably saw manatees.
* There are 3 fishing buddys out having a relaxing day of fishing. Suddenly, they catch a mermaid, who begs them to set her free. She offered to grant them each one wish in exchange for her freedom.
The first guy does not believe her, but says, " If you can grant my wish, then double my IQ". The mermaid grants the wish. Suddenly, he begins quoting Shakespeare flawlessly.
The second guy is amazed and says, "I want you to triple my IQ". The mermaid agrees. Suddenly he starts giving out all sorts of mathematical solutions and answers to physics and chemistry questions that have stumped scientists for years.
The last guy is so amazed by the changes in his friends, that he asks that the mermaid quintuple his IQ. The mermaid says, " I really wish that you would reconsider your request"
The guy says: "No, I want you to increase my I.Q. by five. Do this, or I won't set you free."
"Please," says the mermaid "You don't know what you're asking. If I do this, it will change your entire view of the universe. Please ask for anything else, a million dollars, a mansion or a yacht". No matter what the mermaid offered, the man insisted on having his IQ increased by five times. Finally, the mermaid agreed........ And he became a woman.
