"Awesome metal work!"

I love this creative and unique Nativity. I can tell that a lot of work and care has been put into creating it. I thought it was going to be small, but it is large and easily seen from across the room.

"So Interesting!"

When I unwrapped this set, my family said, Wow! The use of recycled parts is so skillfully done. While the picture is accurate, it does not do justice to the sculpture. It is a fascinating addition to my collection.

"A stunning addition to my collection"

I am a fan of Armando Ramirez. I have purchased several of his pieces, for me and for gifts. This is a gift for me. I have nativity scenes from around the world, but this, created by recycling unwanted pieces, is imbued with the spirit of the first Christmas night - unwanted people, discarded, crowded into a shed or cave. But beautiful. Ramirez takes the unwanted and creates beauty. It is already on my mantel, and may live there all year.

"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.

"She love it"

Luckily, I found this beauty surfing the web looking for a gift for my wife for our 6-year anniversary. THIS SCULPTURE IS PERFECT since I work in a metal recycling company and our first outings were to parks.
