Details

Ready in the laboratory, an optical microscope awaits the scientist's arrival. Armando Ramírez crafts the image from an amazing assortment of recycled metal and automobile parts. A timing chain, spark plug, metal tubes, die-cut scraps and a piston rod all find a new use in this unique sculpture.

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

"Great piece for any scientist"

I couldn't resist having this in my office (I'm a biologist) and think it looks great. It's a great take on the microscope. I've had lots of people asking where I obtained it. Great find I made!

"This was a fantastic retirement gift!"

This is really a piece of art, we ordered this as a retirement gift for one of our physicians and had it mounted with start and end date on it. It was loved by all. Great Work and fantastic detail!

"Gift to Husband"

This gift depicted my husband, IT executive. He works hard and the detail of this recycled or upcycled gift was amazing workmanship. Kudos to the ingenuity and skill of the artist that created this!
