Story Behind the Art: 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.'

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
Two benefits for the price of one - art and game. This chess set is great as decoration - piece of art - and also serves as a functional game. I have owned this for about a year now and have really enjoyed it.
I am a female but I bought this piece while remodeling my black and white room. If you're looking for a creative unique piece that is unobtrusive this is IT! It's a delectable concoction of intellect, a little 'oil and sweat' and masculinity..sort of like the perfect man lol.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes..better if that's possible
