Oil Drum Sculptures

Oil Drum Oryx Wall Mount Sculpture

Swahili Modern


  • These one-of-a-kind sculptures are welded from recycled oil drums and scrap metal, and portray the wild oryx that roam Eastern Africa. 

    The sculptures come to us from a small group of Kenyan metal artists outside of Nairobi who work exclusively with recycled materials. The oryxes can be displayed inside or outside of the home, with the metal developing a patina with exposure to the elements. 

    Measures 25"W x 20"L x 12"T. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, some variation may occur. 

  • 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.
