Details

Discarded thick wires, metal sheets, pulleys and screws become a train engine under the ingenious creativity of Mexico's Armando Ramírez. Once the main frame of the engine is built, Ramírez transforms a car bearing and spark plugs into characteristic train parts. Ramírez recycles bendix parts from a car's electric system into the train's cauldrons, which are joined together with thick wire and a brush holder from a car's electric system.

Please note it is the artist's intention not to give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

"Wonderful Sculpture!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased the Locomotive as a gift for a train enthusiast. Nice keepsake. It is finished nicely with lots of whimsical personality and character. Very nice personalized hand written note from the artist, which is a nice touch to accompany the gift. I will look for more pieces from this artist. Thank you Novica and thank you Armando Ramirez.
