Oil Drum Sculptures

Lion Oil Drum Sculpture

Swahili Modern

OAK30B

  • These richly detailed, freestanding lion sculptures are are welded outside of Nairobi using recycled oil drums and scrap metal. Each lion is handcrafted from the ground up and is one-of-a-kind.

    The sculptures can be displayed inside or outside of the home, with the metal developing a lovely patina with exposure to the elements.

    Small measures almost 3' to the top of the mane and 2' to the top of the body. Size may vary slightly. Large lion is sold out and discontinued.

    Extra shipping fees are required for most sizes. Please see the shipping tab for more info. These are not available for international shipping.

  • Moses and his small workshop of craftsmen build their own welding machines out of copper coil, tape, steel rod, and a sheet metal housing in order to create these spectacular, metal works of art. Moses began his artistic career making furniture, but quickly switched to sculpture after an interested European buyer created a demand for his works abroad.

  • Shipping for oil drum sculptures starts at $200. We only charge the actual shipping costs and do not charge for "handling" on our end. If shipping costs less than $200, we will charge you less.

    Shipping from Oregon to the Northeast is most expensive while shipping to California is least expensive. Shipping includes the cost for using a lift gate. Costs can sometimes be reduced if you can provide a business address.

    Multiple sculptures can be shipped on a single pallet, typically at no extra cost.

    We can provide a shipping quote at any time during the ordering process. Please email us at info@swahilimodern.com with your full shipping address to get started.

    Once you have placed your order and agreed to the shipping cost, we will send you a Paypal invoice. The total will subtract any shipping you have already paid during the checkout process.
