Details

Match point, judge's call, and this tennis player is about to win. For the avid fan, this upcycled metal sculpture is a true treasure. Mexico's Armando Ramírez shapes the player's and the judge's bodies with a spark plug each, pieces off a die machine for their heads and feet and wires for the arms and legs. What once was a window screen is now the court net, and sheets of metal as well as wires complete the sculpture.

Ramírez does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

The form is more female, note the hips and waist. Substantial size for a standard wall, ceiling 9.5, which is good.
