I bought this as a holiday gift for my husband several years ago because he's a retired triathlete and still a cyclist. He's impossible to buy gifts for and usually ends up returning anything I try to give him. The fact that such an intimate, sweet moment was so poignantly captured using metal and cycle parts was more than I could resist. This is the kind of piece that has motion to it--you feel looking at it that it's almost alive in some way. He was utterly delighted the moment he unwrapped it, and this darling this pair (in whom we see ourselves) has occupied the bar in our front room ever since, where we see them every day and every time we pass through, celebrate every holiday, birthday and anniversary, and are reminded of all the miles we've ridden bikes and all the years we've spent together (nearly two decades and counting). If I had just seen this item today, I would still purchase it in a heartbeat because it speaks to me every time I see it as if it were the first time.
One of the most beautiful works of art I?ve ever seen! The colors are vibrant and clear, the paint applied meticulously.
This was a gift and The recipient really loved it. I loved the craftsmanship and all the details. I loved how they took special care in packaging the gift so it arrived totally protected. I will be purchasing more from Armando and Novica.
