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!

I bought this for my sister as a graduation gift from that to optometry school. She loves it. It has been on her desk since she started her job. It looks in perfect condition and is a great conversation starter.
