about the artist

Murat Brierre (1938–1988) was one of Haiti's principal metal sculptors. He was influenced by George Liautaud, but his work acquired its own, highly experimental style, often focusing on multi-faceted and conjoined figures, fantastically personified elements, and unborn babies visible within larger creatures. He sculpted works that reflected both Christian and Haitian Vodou themes. His works have been displayed in the United States, Mexico, Jamaica, and in Haiti's National Pantheon. Brierre was born in Port-au-Prince. (from Wikipedia)
