Details

This hard-working executive sits in front of his computer under the glare of a desk lamp, phone always nearby. The statuette is fabulously detailed and rich in expressiveness, a feat considering that all of the components are metallic. Armando Ramírez shapes the executive with a car's spark plug for the body, pieces off a die machine for the head and wires for the arms and legs. What once was a window screen is now the keyboard, and the rest of this admirable sculpture includes upcycled sheets of metal, wires, and further pieces discarded off a die.

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

"A delight for a new or old computer guy."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

As soon as I saw this I knew I had to send it to my nephew who was getting started in a new business. He loved it. The phone and lamp made the sculpture look just like his desk with him sitting at it. I love to give these sculptures as gifts. I even have one I got for myself. The Rustic Fluitist. Frequently I check what is new, just in case, I will find some delightful item for another friend or family member would appreciate.

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.
