  • Painted with bright colorful design inspired by local Haitian culture

Story Behind the Art:
 Caribbean Craft promotes employment in Haiti by training unskilled but often highly gifted craftspeople, and by assisting the independent artisans through the introduction of new designs and new market outlets. Unemployment in Haiti, the poorest country of the American hemisphere, is variously estimated at between 60 and 80 percent. The organization has gone through rough times during the past years, marked by political troubles and economic difficulties including a three year long embargo on all Haitian exports. Caribbean Craft currently employs 400 artisans either as salaried employees or outside contractors, with roughly equal numbers of men and women. The natural artistic talents of the Haitians are well known, and many of these hand-painted pieces are truly works of art.

    This is a very cute piece! The colors are bright and vibrant. I had a larger white gecko and wanted some accent pieces and this worked perfectly.

  • Slightly faded. Posable. Good mixed w/other geckos
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Pink 8"

    I purchased seven of the recycled oil drum geckos in various colors for an impact wall in the men's restroom of a Mexican restaurant. The guys love the impact and got a kick out of the gecko formation. I carefully bent the legs of the geckos and glued them to a bright-colored (vibrant blue) wall, so the impact was stunning. They do have a sturdy small triangular hook on the back for mounting, but I glued them to the wall with Gorilla Glue, since once I bent them, the hook wasn't usable. I even glued one across the corner of the room, with one leg glued to each wall and the other legs stretched out to give it the walking effect. I mounted this pinkish "girl" gecko to the ceiling while the "boy" geckos were crawling up the walls! I love supporting the Haitian people and these geckos reflect their beautiful artistry and culture. Note: I wrote a poor review for another (blue) one, as it was more faded than this one, but when I placed them on a bright blue wall together, the fading was not noticeable.

  • STUNNING!!

    Option: Pink 8"

    I keep thinking that one of these Haitian pieces of art will not be "up to snuff" -- but I keep being wrong! I now have the blue frog, and this gorgeous pink gekko. I just ordered the green dragonfly, and wow -- will I have a brilliant wall-full of joyfully decorated art! I hope that every penny generated from this sale will go to help the Haitian people. I am so grateful to benefit from their visionary work.
