One day, we turned around and realized we were carrying a load of roosters. (Ok. This happened during last shopping trip to Haiti, which was way back in January.)
Here is just a bit of the selection:
This piece, found here, is super popular, and made by one of the few female metal artisans in Haiti.
Coincidentally, this piece is also made by a female artisan, in fact, the wife of the artisan who creates Three Stone Steps’ love and peace pieces. Depending on the decor, I can see this in a kitchen. If you want it for yours, you can find it here.
Not shown to scale! This small piece, 4.5″ x 6″ is perfect to fit anywhere. And, need I say it, it’s A for adorable. It’s right here.
And, that’s not all!
Ok, this wise looking bird isn’t yet on my site–one day, I’ll have it updated to include housewares–but I always think that if Picasso’s cubist period took place in Haiti and if he worked in recycled oil drums, well, he’d make a rooster trivet not too different from this one.
Last but not least and not on my site, check out this wonderful papier-mâché rooster below:
