Details

Mexican artisan Armando Ramirez transforms recycled sheet metal, auto parts, and other hardware into a beautiful sculpture. A graceful hummingbird--made of intricately cut sheet metal for the wings and tail, a gear for the head, and gear chain for the underside of the body--drinks nectar from a flower supported by a stem made of rebar with a hammered sheet metal leaf, standing on a round base. This impressive sculpture is a beautiful way to celebrate both nature's beauty and the importance of protecting it through recycling.

"Reflect on the past"

I sent this to my husbands father who was in the Marines during two wars. It has meant so much for him. In spite of living the wars, he also is proud of what he did and what he is now.

"Husband loved it!"

My husband works in tech and I thought this statue would be cooler than yet another Funko Pop. He was impressed with it and loves the retro pc design
