Details

This sci-fi take on one of the desert's fiercest inhabitants will make for a very cool desk partner or an excellent conversation piece nestled amongst your shelves. Armando Ramirez hand-crafts it by putting together pieces of scrap metal and automobile parts. Sheet metal scraps, a timing chain, spark plugs, springs, washers, screws, and wire all find a new life in this unique sculpture. The artisan does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

Armando Ramirez has turned his childhood pastime of crafting toys into an art form that has allowed him to exploit his ingenuity and his creativity. He uses scrap metal from auto shops and bicycles to create sculptures, decor pieces, and even chess sets. The popularity of his creations has enabled Armando to start a workshop and dedicate himself full-time to his artistic pursuits.

"Love this artist!!"

We now have at least 4-5 pieces from Armando Ramirez. His talent is phenomenal! This was purchased for our youngest son to hang his car keys and Covid mask on,in his room. This was one of those gifts that is soooo hard to let go of and actually give away. I would love one of just about everything of Armando Ramirez ,we have his amazing deer sculpture that has a place for a votive candle and it is hands down my most favorite piece of art!! Highly recommend getting something from this amazing artist ! His small people sculptures have made charming gifts through the years but his larger work is absolutely exquisite!!!

"Clever auto part sculpture"

I bought one of these pediatricians for my nephew who is a pediatrician. He loves it and told me it is very cute.I also bought one for my personal doctor. She loves hers, too.Armando Ramirez is very creative--a true artisan.. I have bought several of his sculptures and have loved every one of them and so have the peopleI have given them to.. I turned the Barber sculpture into a Retinologist giving an eye injection. When I look at them, they do not seem like they are made out of scrap auto parts. All I see is a delightful showpiece.
