Handcrafted art sculptures handmade in Cambodia from recycled bomb shells. Ironwork artisans have been trained by a professional in their handicraft skill. Produced in a small workshop under fair conditions in the urban city of Phnom Penh. Bomb casings were left over from Cambodia’s wartime three decades ago. Ironwork artisans then skillfully mold bombshells into creative little creatures, introducing a small income to underprivileged communities.
Images included of Father Bee. Mother Bee. Nativity Set.
