Like pre-Hispanic warriors, rustic figures do battle atop a pyramid. This wonderful creation is the work of Armando Ramírez. Queens are fashioned of screws and bearings, kings are cogwheels and metal scraps, while sparkplugs and other castoffs find a new life as sculpture. Combining art and function, Ramírez creates each piece from discarded automobile parts.

Bit sad”

Purchased Rustic Chess set.Arrived in a timely manner. Dissapointed with the lack of care when finishing this item. Lumps of welding mig left which takes away from being able to identify the pieces...Take some time to finish.Looks rushed :(

High quality, unique, fantastic artistry”

This is such a unique and creative piece of artistry. I love the extra touches like the letter and postcard from the artist and NOVICA. The chess pieces are high quality, heavy, and well crafted. Will certainly purchase more from this artist in the future.
