Haiti



Last year I got this art piece as a gift  from my friend Teresa who had bought it from a local metal craftsman in Haiti when she was staying there. Even though I have never visited Haiti but I felt connected with the country through this work of art which is there in my living room. I have always visualized the craftsman and his family in my mind who would have made this beautiful work. The recent devastating Haiti earthquake has made me really sad.
Prayers of hope to those affected by it...
Peace

yeah, a lovely piece. It reminds me of this book which was based on a family in Haiti. It's called 'On beauty' by Zadie Smith. I think you will like it too. Haiti personally speaking = beautiful + strong people... :)
