Details

Sailing across the centuries, a square-rigged galleon moves swiftly across the ocean. The ships played an important role in the discovery of the Americas and were used from the 1400s to the early 1700s. Fashioned of an astonishing assortment of recycled metal, the ship springs from the imagination of Armando Ramírez. Galvanized wire holds the sails aloft while nuts form portholes and flags wave from screws. Iron sheets are used to shape the hull and sails.

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

My husband is very fond of this group of artists treasures, and really liked the ship. The large size is really appealing and unusual. Lots of details make it impressive.

"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!.
