Details

This gleaming biplane is ready to soar above uncharted lands in an exclusive design by Mexico's Armando Ramirez. This original artist transforms the discarded metal pieces off a die machine into the plane's propellers, spark plug body, and wings. These are held in place with thick wires. The wings' rotors are made from cogs that once were part of a car's electric system. The plane's axis tail is cut from a metal tube. Finally, Ramirez uses screws to simulate the plane's headlights.

Please note it is the artist's intention not to give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.
