Details

Spark plugs are recycled into an expressive sculpture by Mexican artisan Armando Ramirez. He portrays a mechanic at work on the front part of a V.W. Beetle, which he crafts from a car's ball bearings, chain and rocker arm. Metal nails and sheets serve to complete this whimsical sculpture.

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

I sent this to my cousin in Colombia; he lives alone but works for the desplazados because of the violence and war. Before the pandemic he would travel to the Magdalena river and would take the most amazing pictures. I hope this inspires him and gives him validation for the what he does.
