These sculptures are made from the nuts and bolts of old typewriters, automotive parts and other discarded metallic appliances found in junk shops that are creatively welded together to form his unique art pieces.

Here is what Mario had to say about the last motorcycle art depicted:
"KNUCKLEHEAD is a HARLEY model introduced in 1931…it is made of 100% recycled metal..the turning wheels came from a broken bonsai tool cart and the rest , bits and pieces collected from old metal junks, bolts, nuts and screws. This piece has at least 5 layers of clear coat to prevent rust and corrosion. It stands 12"L x 4"W 8"H and weighs 4.2 kilos. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and is signed and dated."
