Details

Armando Ramírez revisits the golden age of film with this classic film projector, built from various auto parts and pieces of scrap metal. Spark plugs, a pulley from a toy train engine, and the chain and wheel of a motorcycle begin to shape the projector. Several auto parts complete it, such as the ignition wheel of a car, the foot and diaphragm of the clutch pedal, and a bearing from the electrical 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.

"Reflect on the past"

I sent this to my husbands father who was in the Marines during two wars. It has meant so much for him. In spite of living the wars, he also is proud of what he did and what he is now.

"Husband loved it!"

My husband works in tech and I thought this statue would be cooler than yet another Funko Pop. He was impressed with it and loves the retro pc design
