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.

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 have ordered many of his pieces in the past. This one was much larger than I expected with great details, even down to individual petals.
