Details

Fairly dancing to the beat, a drummer pounds fast rhythms on his drums. Shining cymbals seem to vibrate in this delightful sculpture. Armando Ramírez transforms recycled automobile parts into a rustic work of art. His body is shaped from a spark plug, his arms from thick wires. The drum set is shaped from discarded pieces off a die machine.

Please note it is the artist's intention not to give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

"cherished gift for my grandson"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was amazed at the quality and work that went into this piece. I must say that I expected something tinnier and smaller. This is so well crafted and unique that it will be hard to let it go. I love it, but it will go to my grandson.

"Can't Wait To Give It To My Son"

I fell in love with this online as my son is a drummer and I know he will love it too. I am keeping it until his Bday in May (if I can stand it) so his review will appear after that.

I bought this for my sister as a graduation gift from that to optometry school. She loves it. It has been on her desk since she started her job. It looks in perfect condition and is a great conversation starter.
