Details

Shifting into gear, a cement mixer rumbles to life as Armando Ramírez recycles castoff auto parts and discarded bits of metal. Sheet metal becomes the sturdy bumper and wire mesh, the grille. Screws are transformed into lights while auto bearings become wheels. Wire, tubes and die-cut scraps all ingeniously fulfill distinct roles.

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

"Amazing detail!"

Ive been waiting for this sculpture for months to give as a gift to my niece, who just became a veterinarian. I was in awe of the quality and detail of this piece, and I know that my niece is going to treasure it! I will definitely be back for more sculptures in the future!

"A Perfect Valentines Day Gift!"

I have purchased several of Armando Ramirezs auto parts figurines for my boyfriend. He loves them, and displays them proudly! Being an artist, he has a deep appreciation for all types of art. Thank you Armando! I am not finished collecting your fun pieces!

"Clever design that looks even better in person"

Somehow the picture doesnt convey to me quite how precarious the hummingbird looks in real life and yet how solid it actually is. It also looks extremely cool.
