Young sweethearts sit on a bench in the park as they whisper pledges of love. They come to life as Armando Ramirez finds a new use for all kinds of discarded metal and auto parts. Framed in a heart of sheet metal, the two embrace with ardent arms of galvanized wire. With their trim spark plug bodies and nails as legs, they find romance in a rustic wine bottle holder. (Wine is not included.)
The artisan does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

"Perfect for Valentines day"
So nice. This artisan is very talented. I thought it would be a great hint to have this around, sort of like mistletoe. I gave these statues to my husband. So I get to enjoy them as well. He also is very impressed with the creativity and talent.
