Description
Seated on a tree stump, Don Quixote reads a book. Armando Ramirez depicts the beloved character from Miguel de Cervantes' 17th century novel, sculpting the idealistic knight from recycled metal. Sheet metal scraps, a spark plug, screws and wire all find a new life in this handcrafted sculpture.

The artisan does not give his works a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

    'Quixote Reads Cervantes'- the name is as whimsical as the sculpture. It is very well done, and quite charming to look at. I loved all of the different materials he used to create this piece. Absolutely wonderful.
