Details

Recycled auto parts and metal come together in a sculpted replica of a Puma helicopter thanks to the creative instinct of Mexican artist Armando Ramirez. He crafts the cabin with a half sphere of the type used in building construction, and thick wires are used to frame the windows. The carriage and seats are crafted with metal sheets and the gear stick is shaped from a thick wire. The blades are shaped from metal pieces discarded off a die machine and a half sphere. Ball bearings from a bus' electric system are transformed into the helicopter's tires and the fenders are shaped from rocker arms.

The top blades are removed for shipping.

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

"Connected old and young in delight!"

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.

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.

I bought this for my grandson. He loves it. Especially because it came from Mexico. His Dad is from Mexico and he?s very proud of his heritage. When I saw this I knew it was for him. Amazing detail and craftsmanship. I know he?ll have this forever.
