These are truly a work of ART !!
These Butterflies are truly a work of art. We are very pleased with the entire experience. From ordering to opening the box. The presentation of the art was exceptional. The colors are amazing. We are sure they will last a lifetime. Thank you.
Lovely! Nicely Done.
I have all three of his hummingbirds now! This is the third one. As Lovely as the other two! The flowers seem to get smaller as the hummingbird gets a bit larger ?? in each piece I have received. I personally prefer the larger flowered piece over the larger hummingbird. The colors are vibrant for each one, however that one really stands out! I ll treasure all three of your art and I am a quite satisfied customer. Good work. Thank you once again for creating something that brings smiles in our household.

Day of the Dead Upcycled Metal Sculpture of Elegant Catrina, "Glamorous Catrina"
Wearing a dress of fig leaves, Catrina arrives on the Day of the Dead as an honored guest. Political cartoonist Jose Guadalupe Posadas created this renowned character in the early 1900's as a critique of Mexico's bourgeoisie, and to remind them they are mortals too. The Catrina name refers to death personified who is always dressed in exuberant fashion and colors in order to lure mortals. Always creative, Armando Ramírez sculpts her image by upcycling a wide variety of metal pieces including wire mesh for the broad-brimmed bonnet while sheet metal scraps are transformed into her gown, shawl and handbag. Wires become her arms and shape her jewelry.
Ramírez does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.
Unique Handmade Hand Painted Steel Wall Art (Medium), "Ancient Shade Tree"
Capturing the nostalgia of an ancient and venerable shade tree, Alejandro de Esesarte translates his concept to this lovely wall sculpture. He works in steel to create the images, hammering them into low relief and painting them by hand.
Because each piece is individually hand-crafted and painted, size and color could vary slightly.
