There is something intriguing about using the depiction of a person in wall art.  Whether it is because we connect with the picture on a basic level or simply want to see someone else having a good time, a figure in a musical and entertainment metal wall art sculpture is the perfect subject.  Be inspired by the two metal wall art pieces below as you begin selecting items for your room’s decorations.

In the Girl with Bicycle Abstract Handmade Metal Wall Artyhst-23119701400359_2147_2348438 piece, the calming natural colors of the artwork create a perfect hanging for any wall.  Orange, gold, brown and multi-colored strands work together to create this stunning picture of grace and beauty.  At over 35-inches high and 23-inches wide, this wall sculpture works well on any size wall.  Use it to enhance the living room, den, or music room.

In contrast to the calming colors in the piece above, the red, orange and multi-colored pattern of the Waiting Lady Abstract Handmade Metal Wall Artyhst-23119701400359_2147_109580851 sculpture make a bold statement.  Slightly impatient looking and dressed for a night out, the woman in this wall art is far different than the other one.  At 32-inches high and 23-inches wide, this piece can work on just about any wall and with any abstract decor.

Fleur de Lis patterns are notoriously associated with French design.  By including Fleur de Lis designs into your sconces, you add style that other sconces simply cannot provide.  For a look that is all its own, choose a Fleur de Lis pattern for your next redesign.
