Recycled Oil Drum Ibis Bird Sculptures

Swahili Modern

OAK38B


  • These beautifully crafted, freestanding birds are welded outside of Nairobi by metal artists using recycled oil drums and scrap metal. Each ibis is handcrafted from the ground up and exhibits its own unique characteristics.

    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 17"L x 7"W x 48"T. Large measures 20"L x 7"W x 59"T. Size may vary slightly.

    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.
