This river rock angel sculpture is made from a solid piece of rock that is hand chiseled and sanded into a whimsical sculpture. The river rock is made in Haiti by a handful of different artists.
New stone artists are frequently introduced and hand carving river rocks provides income to hundreds of Haitian families.
Pre-Columbian artifacts found in Haiti show that Arawak’s had a stone carving tradition which disappeared with their extinction. Haitian sculptors have historically favored carving in mahogany and other tropical woods. It was not until Haiti’s arts movement of the 1950s that the Arawak tradition was restored.
Use this sculpture for everyday decoration or around the holidays!
Either way this river rock work of art will make anyone, especially an angel lover, a very happy gift!
