Details

Eternally romantic, Don Quixote pines after his beloved Dulcinea after battling windmills he believed were giants. An admirable character in Spanish literature, Don Quixote was created by Miguel de Cervantes de Saavedra, inspiring this endearing sculpture by Armando Ramírez. As ingenious as this millenary personage, Ramírez recycles several auto parts into a vivid sculpture including a generator cap for the helmet, connecting rod for his back, a thick wire for the lance, Bendix pieces for the legs, and a rocker arm for Quixote's chest. Ramírez also gives use to discarded pieces off a die machine, wires, and a small tricycle rim for the shield.

"Connected old and young in delight!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Opened at a socially distanced outdoor birthday party for a teenager, the young biker it was given to and all the other generations passed it and the information about the artist around to smiles, laughter, oohs and aahs, bringing people from different generations and different countries together for a moment amidst the isolation everyone is feeling right now.

Best Uses

  • Decorating a teenagers room!

My husband is very fond of this group of artists treasures, and really liked the ship. The large size is really appealing and unusual. Lots of details make it impressive.
