Stampeding across the open prairie a wild horse takes shape from an amazing assortment of bicycle and automobile parts. Pulleys form the ears, while wire becomes the mane and tail. Metal bits left from a die cutter are transformed into the body. This very original sculpture is created by Armando Ramirez and stands on a clutch diaphragm. Ramirez does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.
About the Artist: Born in a Mexican town famed for its traditional artistry, Armando Ramirez dreamed of creating something new. "As a child I enjoyed inventing toys, and soon yearned to create a unique style of art. Environmentally enamored, I now transform recycled goods. I began to craft figures from scrap and discarded mechanical parts, mostly from cars and bicycles. Thanks to the creativity that God gave me, today I have an enjoyable and better way of life."
The Armando Ramirez Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Armando Ramirez in Mexico. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
