Story Behind the Art: Armando Ramirez speaks of his art, 'As a child I enjoyed inventing toys, and soon yearned to create a unique style of art. Little by little, I began to craft figures from scraps and discarded mechanical parts. The process involves selecting recycled items that can be used. I separate them and soak them in a cleaning solution to remove any impurities. I solder them together until I achieve my design, then I give it a protective coat of glossy varnish. My sculptures are so successful that today I sell only my own works. They are rustic in nature, designed to recycle discarded objects by converting them into art. Thanks to the creativity that God gave me, today I have an enjoyable and better way of life.'

This was purchased as a wedding gift for a co-worker who has eclectic tastes....she really liked it and was interested to know that it was a free trade item and included the artist's name. This purchase is exactly why I make overstock my place to go when needing anything of high quality and reasonable price...and I only need to spend a few minutes to find the right item.
