Our Double Tree of Life Wall Sculptures are created by Haitian artisans through our fair trade partner Beyond Borders. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, with 80% of the population living under the poverty line. Successful international business relationships are few, partly due to concerns over safety and political instability.

Beyond Borders began representing Haitian artists in 1989, empowering individual artisans to create development opportunities that respect the native culture and foster environmentally sustainable practices. These artists are able to use materials around them in new and inventive ways to create unique pieces of art. Beyond Borders works with dozens of individual artists, many of whom have tens or even hundreds of employees of their own, creating countless new opportunities to earn a fair wage and develop their artistic and business skills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this double Tree of Life Wall Sculpture I love this wall art, it's lightweight, was easy to hang on my plaster walls in my old house, goes well with my wrought iron light fixtures and gate entry to my living room. It's unique. March 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Purchase! I bought this for my dorm room and it was a great buy! It adds life to my room and the detailing is amazing. Im thinking about buying another for a gift for a friend! March 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful I bought this for our mantel and am so glad I did! It is beautiful and peaceful and it fit perfectly though I wouldn't have minded if it were 1 inch larger. Soooo happy with this purchase! March 8, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Artistic Addition Lighter than I expected, it hangs on my wall with two small nails, one on either side of two branches roughly across from each other on the tree. The light makes interesting shadows on the wall and the sheen of the metal shines without being a glare. January 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Affordable Art This is a nice sized piece of art that has a great story behind it's creation. We've ordered a few for wedding gifts and everyone is always thrilled with it! August 22, 2010
