As the motor roars into life, rotors begin to whirl and this rustic helicopter is ready to lift off. Armando Ramírez crafts the chopper from an amazing assortment of recycled metal and automobile parts. Sheet metal scraps, a timing chain, spark plugs, springs, washers, screws and wire all find a new life in this unique sculpture.
The artisan does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.
Armando has built his workshop and is now able to give work to other artisans to continue expanding his craft all over the world.
Armando has received 1st place from the regional contest of the Jaliscience Institute of Crafts for his sculptures.
Armando uses and continues to pass down traditional techniques to his children, who now carry on his same methods.
Armando is a very dedicated father. He has two children that he supports financially.
Armando's income helps pay for the education of his two daughters.
