Put a Whale on Your Wall
Though we've charted every inch of the sea, it's still fun to imagine water-spouting leviathans circling the edge of the map. Jean Roosevelt Beauchard's sculpture is inspired by a breaching whale, but with fantastic touches like scales. He renders his wall relief from a surprising source: steel oil drums. Starting with retired 55-gallon drums, Jean removes both ends, burns away the oil residue, slices the cylinder down one side, and pounds it into a flat sheet. He draws his intricate design onto the metal with chalk, then uses a hammer and chisel to cut, shape, and contour the sheet into a piece that balances sophisticated detail with rustic, handcrafted charm. It makes great decor for any living room, office, or beach house that could use a touch of majestic marine drama.
The design naturally provides multiple points for hanging (hardware not included). It's finished with a protective clear coat, but intended for indoor use. Handmade in Haiti.
Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
