The imaginative world of Armando Ramirez now conjures an endearing turtle, its shell opening to reveal a special hiding place. Ramirez recycles metal pieces, including a car's rocker arm for the turtle's body. A wide assortment of metal pieces, remnants from die machines, become different parts of the turtle's anatomy.
