Intent on his work, a lathe operator applies his skill in this engaging work by Armando Ramirez. The Mexican artist crafts the image from recycled metal and automobile parts. Galvanized wire, sheet metal scraps, spark plugs, screws and more come together in an eco-friendly sculpture.
The artisan does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.
