Details

It's the last seconds of the game and the ball is in the basket in an entertaining sculpture by Mexico's Armando Ramirez. His ingenious sense of art is evident in the admirable way in which he recycles scrap metal. The players' bodies, for example, are car spark plugs, and their limbs are shaped from long screws. Ramirez uses discarded pieces from a die machine to shape the players' heads. The ball is made up of two hoops made from metal sheets.

Please note it is the artist's intention not to give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

"So nice, I kept it for myself"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Originally, I bought this Don Quixote sculpture to decorate a guest suite for someone who enjoys this Cervantes character. But it is so well-made and attractive that I keep it in my foyer so that I can see it every day, instead! Substantial weight, sturdy, as well as, artistic. Highly recommend!
