"I like stone's naturalness and purity of color."
Born on February 20, 1962, Cesar Gonzáles has worked as a stone carver since 1988. Before that his job was in residential construction, building and finishing houses. But after learning the technique of stone sculpture in the workshop of a friend, he found he preferred it; the following year he became independent and began to create his own images.
A married man, Gonzáles has a son and three daughters. The oldest girl shows the most interest in her father's art and even assists him.
Gonzáles works with serpentine, rose manganese, calcite, celestite, red jasper, mottramite, chrysocolla, rhodochrosite and quartz. He travels to mines in the central sierra to acquire minerals and materials of all kinds. "I work in stone because of the beautiful things that can be made with each kind," he says. "I like stone's naturalness and purity of color."
I love the stone pyramid -- it is extremely beautiful! Thank you!

The stone work was powerful and beautiful.
The stone work was powerful and beautiful. The packaging was a work of art in itself and the wrapping was so beautiful I did not want to open it.
Beautiful items. I am proud to have them. I hope to deal with him often.
The Energy Pyramid was absolutely beautiful, and arrived charged with energy. My friend told me it was the perfect gift. I was very happy giving this beautiful sculpture to her! Thank you for everything!!!!!
I just received the scupture Jungle Cockatoo by Cesar Gonzales, and it is magnificent! Superb! It is a truly beautiful work of art. I will definitely buy more of his work. Thank you. J. Moher
I bought a pyrite sphere and I was very impress by the workmanship. It's the most beautiful ball that I own, and I have quite a few of them. Thanks for the opportunity to do business with you.
I just received my sculpture ""Toucan Dines."" It's absolutely beautiful. I love it. Cesar Gonzales' sculpture is perfect in every aspect. Thank you. J. Moher
This is a beautiful piece of work, not as bright as the pictures may suggest, but it is better because of it, the beauty of the natural stone comes through great. I bought the item as a gift an I am sure they will love it. I will definately consider this artists work again in the future if this is an indication of the quality of their work and attention to detail. I would highly recommend this item to anyone.
I received my calcite and jasper sphere, ""Be Calm,"" and it is big & beautiful. I like, trust & have confidence in Mr. Gonzales' work & I will continue to buy his sculptures with pleasure. Thank you. J. Moher
your work is magnificent, I know they will bring good energy into my home. thank you for your talent and for sharing it with me and others.
I sent the Sodalite & Angelite Pyramid""Sweet Colors"" as a gift. My friend was so overly excited when they saw the pyramid. Thank you Cesar, I'm always looking for some different.
Your lovely carved frog receives many compliments and I enjoy seeing him reside by my peace plant. A wonderful piece of art that stimulates the eyes, as well as the sense of touch that sculpture encourages. Best wishes for continued success in your art form.
I'm truly enjoying the pyramid made out of Jade and Pyrite. It's beautiful, the craftsmanship is superb. Thank you.
I have received the Cockatoo gemstone carving by Cesar, and what a carving it is !! This magnificent work of art exemplifies his statement "" I like stone's naturalness and purity of color"". The gemstone carvings I have previously accumulated now look amateurish, pale and insignificant. I would rather have one of this ARTIST'S works than any ten of my others and will definitely be back for more. Thank you for showing me what I should have been collecting. Laurie Coad
I bought a ""World of Shadows"" but was not prepared for what arrived. I have collected spheres of different minerals and crystals for years. When I received this ""simple"" black sphere I was stunned. It is hard to put in words what it is about it, but this is my most favorite sphere now of the 100+ I have in my collection. Most all my spheres were made by machines, this one was hand carved out of a block of raw stone. Some sparks of pyrite are visible in the beautiful rich black onyx, which proves that this onyx really came from a certain part in Peru. It is the most beautiful natural stone carved in a way that brings out its natural beauty even more.

I purchased a beautiful Jade obelisk from Senor Gonzales as a gift for my husband. He is very, very happy with it. The jade is absolutely gorgeous and deep in color, the workmanship is excellent, perfect. And of course the personal touch is so appreciated. Gracias Senor Gonzales. Feliz Navidad.

Mr. Gonzales creates memorable and eye catching colorful pieces of art. I have purchased many of his works and I am anxiously awaiting more of his new sculptures. He truly is a talented and gifted artist.
thanks, Cesar Gonzalez, beautiful stonework of the pyramid, it is channeled and positive cosmic forces
I just received the Parrot Love sculpture and I'm amazed by the wonderful carving and attention to details. It's incredible how each bird feather is detailed - no sloppy carving here. Everything about the sculpture is beautiful and realistic. Thank you Cesar and I hope to own more of your sculptures in the future. Betty
thanks, Cesar Gonzalez,i received the jasper and onyx obelisk,beautiful,will soon lend his light and splendor,in order to improve
I love my 'World of Shadows'. I have it on my desk at work. Sometimes when stressed, I will hold it in my hand allowing the weight and coolness calm me. The perfection of the sphere amazes me.
Received my jasper obelisk and it is stunningly beautiful. He took care in wrapping it to ship also. Thank you so much or this easy purchase of a great item. Good luck and I hope to be purchasing more of your work. My daughters call me a 'rock hound'. Thanks Cesar
Monday April 23, 2012 Dear Cesar, Today I received my Chrysocolla sphere with Calcite stand. This was an awesome experience, I have to say they both are absolutely beautiful and one of a kind! It is truly rare to have such a specimen that is handcarved! I have held it and looked it over marveling approvingly. Very pleasantly surprising how it was wrapped for transit. The unique wrapping with the doll was to me indicative of Peru culture, including the neat postcard from Peru. I feel very special to possess a piece of art, all in the media of nature, efforts in artistry and workmanship and the care and beauty in wrapping it for shipment. I only know how to say thank you for your wonderful work by saying how much I will cherish this very special piece! Sincerely Sharon J Rogers
I received Cesar Gonzales' ""Be Positive"" pyramid and it surpassed all my expectations. I look forward to collecting more of his pyramids. Thank You!

The Wild Duck Handcrafted Bird Sculpture I purchased from Cesar Gonzales arrived gift wrapped and packaged very, very well. The actual box it was shipped in was thicker than average and the sculpture was protected by lots of padding material. My package included a gift message card and an artist story card. The duck sculpture was beautiful on Novica's site but I was mesmerized by just how beautiful it actually was once I was able to hold it in my own hand. It is very detailed and realistic looking. The colors are simply divine. This is a small sculpture that fits in the palm of my hand and it is made very well. You can tell that a lot of love went into crafting this sculpture.
Cesar, you work is outstanding! I have my Natural Energy Pyramid in my hands. It is absolutely beautiful and powerful. I have it oriented in my office in the direction that you have suggested. I have been more productive since placing it there! Thank you! Sherry

To Cesar Gonzáles and The Andes team, I received my Garnet sphere,'Passion' and was absolutely delighted with how beautiful it is. Expertly packaged and still reminiscent of the Peruvian culture. I look forward to receiving many more of these highly artistic creations. Devlin Francis
Your work is fantastic! We love our pyramid and it's a wonderful addition to our collection. We highly recommend your work to others. Thank you.
I received my chrysocolla spheres, ""intuition"" and ""serenity,"" and both are stunning. The workmanship is outstanding, the materials are beautiful, the stands are lovely....I am so pleased. Wonderful work, and I appreciate it very much. Thank you!
So far I have purchased six works of art by Mr. Gonzales: three obelisks,. a sphere, a pyramid, and a sculpture. All are beautiful. The combination of color and form simply dazzle the eye and inspire the soul. I'll return for more inspirational art. Thank you for sharing your talent.

I just received my order from Mr. Gonzales and I must say I am blown away by the beauty and craftsmanship. I ordered the ""vigilant owl"" sculpture.

Dear Cesar Gonzales, I love your work! You do amazing things with gemstones. I now have 8 pieces in my collection, my favorite is the ""vigilant owl"" I look forward to seeing many more spectacular works of art from you! I love the way you painstakingly wrap your sculpture's. I fill like a kid at Christmas when I receive and open my packages. The little dolls that adorn your packages are adorable, and make the experience even more special. Thank you
I have invested in your gemstone sculptures for several years and I am so thrilled with my growing collection ~ from obelisks to pyramids to owl sculptures to ...... my newest ""Midnight Owl"" and ""Forest McCaw"", both of which I recently received. I can't begin to thank you for all the pleasure I derive admiring your artistry. Sincerely, Bonnie Dudash Chandler, AZ
Magnificent workmanship! This is just a beautiful piece. Can't say enough about it. It was backordered but came incredible quickly and was the most meticulously packed of anything I have ever gotten from any source. Thank you so much! I display it with pride.
I LOVE this piece! It's a really large, nice size with lots of weight to it. The colors are bright and vibrant, and the gemstones used are good quality, not filled with inclusions, flaws and cracks, chips, etc. The craftsmanship is awesome quality and it looks amazing. I would highly recommend this item as well as this artist to anyone!
I received nephrite pyramid today,well done great job!Pyramid looks fantastic and majestic ! Thanks a lot.
I ordered a pair of the ""Toucan Dines""..... breathtaking and simply stunning..the details...the fine stonework ...almost looks real, the picture on the website does not do this marvelous piece of art any justice. Arrived securely wrapped..thank you Novica and Mr. Cesar Gonzales for this beautiful treasure.
Just received my Serpentine Obelisks. I am in awe of their beauty. Absolutely stunning!!
Cesar Gonsales hand carved birds are exquisite ! they are so well packed it would be impossible not to arrive in perfect condition ! the 'free' gift wrapping provided is so beautiful, I did not want to unwrapped, except I could not wait to see my beautifully carved birds and I was not disappointed; I have purchased three so far and hope to add to my collection, thank you Cesar ! you are truely a gifted artist !
I just bought a home in Florida and have decorated my dining room and living room in parrots. I ordered these to go on my dining room table. They are just perfect. I could not believe how truly beautiful they are. They are much more colorful than is shown in the picture. You Mr. Gonzales, are a truly gifted man.
This little guy, or gal is cute as a button. There are more details in the actual statue than appear in the photo. Maybe it's my imagination but it almost looks ""pinker"" than in the picture. Mr. Gonzales, you are a truly gifted man.
This is absolutely above and beyond my expectations. I do not have any knowledge of gemstone carvings other than I think they are beautiful. This little guy stands out with a fruit in his mouth which I believe is turquois. He sits on my desk and I am lucky enough to see him every day. Judging from your picture Mr. Gonzales it doesn't appear you are working but rather immensely enjoying what you do. God Bless you Mr. Gonzales in your continued work
