Details

Armando Ramírez's artistic vision permits him to see a different reality in discarded automotive parts and scrap metal. Transforming them into sculptures, he portrays a classical musician with his violin. A spark plug forms the body while wire and metal scraps complete the piece.

Ramírez does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

"Bought for a very special man"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased this as a Valentines gift for my very special friend Barry. He is an avid fisherman who lives in Alaska so there is no shortage of fish stories! I was so excited to gift this to such an amazing kind man. Im getting him the bulldozer next as he is a dozer hand in his profession.
