Details

Seated on a tree stump, Don Quixote reads a book. Armando Ramirez depicts the beloved character from Miguel de Cervantes' 17th century novel, sculpting the idealistic knight from recycled metal. Sheet metal scraps, a spark plug, screws and wire all find a new life in this handcrafted sculpture.

The artisan does not give his works a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

'Quixote Reads Cervantes'- the name is as whimsical as the sculpture. It is very well done, and quite charming to look at. I loved all of the different materials he used to create this piece. Absolutely wonderful.

"sport fan of soccer"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am going give this as a birthday present to my nephew who since a very young age played this sport and was even in a special soccer team and traveled to Germany among other places. He now lives in the U.S. but his love for soccer has become stronger. This is the fourth sculpture I have purchased from Armando Ramirez; they are in a special place at the home. (Two were for my husband, the cyclist and the photographer. His true passions. He has them on his desk and since he works from home (uses zoom) others see them and are amazed. He says thank you, Ramiro!.
