Details

Thinking of horsepower, Armando Ramírez conjures a fantastical being that is half-equine, half-motorbike. He works with a collection of recycled auto parts as well as scrap metal, and recycles them into this imaginative sculpture. Different pieces from a car's clutch pedal are used for the horse's head and motorbike wheel, while spark plugs become the stallion's body and connecting rods shape its front legs. A variety of bearings, wires and discarded pieces from a die machine complete this original sculpture.

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

"It is wonderfully made, and very clever"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was initially drawn to this item because I m both an owner and a lover of standard poodles. I m surprised I don t see more of them than I do since they are so distinctive looking. But when this piece arrived I was quite pleased with how well designed and put together it was— just like my real live poodle! So it s got a nice spot in a very important room.

"So nice, I kept it for myself"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Originally, I bought this Don Quixote sculpture to decorate a guest suite for someone who enjoys this Cervantes character. But it is so well-made and attractive that I keep it in my foyer so that I can see it every day, instead! Substantial weight, sturdy, as well as, artistic. Highly recommend!
