The camera man follows each scene through the lens of his state-of-the-art camera in an extraordinary statuette by Mexico's Armando Ramirez. The camera is shaped from a field separator taken from a car's electrical system, as well as a couple of wheels, long screws, metal sphere, and pieces that were left over in die machines. The man's body is shaped from a spark plug and long screws.
Please note it is the artist's intention not to give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.
Armando Ramirez has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $3500 and the most recent for $4000. Proceeds were used to buy materials and also a machine for soldering his metal art.
Armando has built his workshop and is now able to give work to other artisans to continue expanding his craft all over the world.
Armando has received 1st place from the regional contest of the Jaliscience Institute of Crafts for his sculptures.
Armando uses and continues to pass down traditional techniques to his children, who now carry on his same methods.
Armando is a very dedicated father. He has two children that he supports financially.
Armando's income helps pay for the education of his two daughters.
