Details

Seated on a tree stump, Don Quixote reads a book. Armando Ramirez depicts the beloved character from Miguel de Cervantes' 17th century novel, sculpting the idealistic knight from recycled metal. Sheet metal scraps, a spark plug, screws and wire all find a new life in this handcrafted sculpture.

The artisan does not give his works a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

'Quixote Reads Cervantes'- the name is as whimsical as the sculpture. It is very well done, and quite charming to look at. I loved all of the different materials he used to create this piece. Absolutely wonderful.

"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.

  • 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.
