Details

Proud and impassioned, Don Quixote rides on Rocinante through fantastical adventures and battles. The lovable hero inspires Armando Ramírez to sculpt his image with an admirable collection of recycled metal parts. Don Quixote is crafted with discarded pieces off a dye machine, springs, thick wires and bearings, as well as different auto parts. A spark plug and parts from a car's ignition and electric system shape Rocinante's equine head, while the rest of the body includes a connecting rod, thick wires, and other auto parts. With this amazing assortment of metal pieces Ramírez creates a sculpture that exudes the heroic romanticism of this legendary character.

"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.
