The enduring spirit of Haitians through generations of struggle has forged a living tradition of artistic creativity and fine craftsmanship. Exquisite pieces are created from discarded metal drums, expressive sculptures carved from river stone and whimsical paper mache figures molded using old cement bags, testifying to the joy and hope of these people.
