Details

Native to Mexico, the tarantula is protected by law, yet poachers often capture the arachnids for illegal trade. Today, domestically-raised tarantulas are being nurtured in Jalisco to make illegal trafficking unprofitable. By Armando Ramirez, the large, hairy spider comes to life in recycled metal. Sheet metal scraps, a half sphere and galvanized wire all find a new life in this unique sculpture, while screws become the fangs.

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

"Clever auto part sculpture"

I bought one of these pediatricians for my nephew who is a pediatrician. He loves it and told me it is very cute. I also bought one for my personal doctor. She loves hers, too. Armando Ramirez is very creative--a true artisan.. I have bought several of his sculptures and have loved every one of them and so have the peopleI have given them to.. I turned the Barber sculpture into a Retinologist giving an eye injection. When I look at them, they do not seem like they are made out of scrap auto parts. All I see is a delightful showpiece.
