La Jacmel is the name for these one-of-a-kind cow skulls created by hand with paper mâché and painted with vibrant horns offset by the patterned skull. Like the well-dressed friend we all have that pushes the envelope with style, pulls it off with class, and gets compliments everywhere they go!
Handmade with love in Haiti ♥
La Jacmels are handmade in the Hatitan beach town of Jacmel (hence the name) by local artisan Pierre Edgar Satyr. Pierre partners with the Artisan Business Network in Haiti which seeks to “empower Haiti’s artisan culture to improve community wellbeing”. And looking at Pierre’s work, you would never guess what material he uses to create them: RECYCLED CEMENT BAGS! What an incredible real life example of creating beauty from ashes (Isaiah 61:3), by turning old cement bags into beautiful paper mâché art.
