If you have a friend or family member who's got a knack for the spiritual, voodoo flags may be the perfect gift. Historically the flags were for religious purposes, but now they’re embroidered and decorated with beautiful sequins and beads.
This 27"x22" voodoo flag created by renowned Haitian artist Maxon Scylla depicts Baron Samedi, one of the loa of Haitian Vodou. Samedi is a loa of the dead, along with Baron's numerous other incarnations Baron Cimetière, Baron La Croix, and Baron Kriminel. He is the head of the Guédé family of loa.
Peintres Haïtiens, by Gérald Alexis, compiles artworks of Haitian artists from 1800s onwards, including a few lesser-known female painters and modernists. Gerald's impressive volume of work features 304 pages with more than 310 pictures in stunning colour! The Peintres Haïtiens book is ideal for anyone interested in visual culture and art history.
They’re only a few copies of the book left worldwide! Buy yours now for $150, and gift it to someone who means a lot to you.
Good abstract art doesn’t have a shelf-life, the reason why our sculptures are a thoughtful gift is because they’re timeless. This is ideal for someone looking for an iconic piece of artwork to add to their home.
Our pick is this "Sensuous" Wood Sculpture on Granite by Randolph San Millan. Randolph San Millan's work flows from his passion to create unique abstract designs that are always thought provoking, and sometimes political. His sculpture is more than a form: it is the crystallization of an idea.
4. How About Art Quilts For Grandma or Grandpa?
Art quilts represent people’s experiences and this particular gift could come in handy for providing warmth at night. We have a selection of women’s handmade original Haitian folk art quilts that support independent, self-managed sewing ateliers in Haiti. Browse our unique art collection to find a special quilt for a loved one.
We recommend the Respect Grandmother art quilt by Respekte Granmoun. In Haiti, respect for your elders is very important. A charming country scene illustrates this love and respect.
If you’d like to gift something simple but meaningful look no further than in our art print section! The only thing rarer than Haitian art is Haitian art prints. Art prints are limited and exclusive by nature, which makes Haitian art prints that much more valuable within communities. Representing an array of printmaking processes, our art prints range from lithographs to posters.
Our choice is this "Island Flowers" Poster On Paper by Jean-Claude Legagneur, a famous figurative master painter from Haiti.
