Details

Perched on an amethyst rock, a quartz and agate cockatoo proudly displays his colorful finery. Brazilian artisan Alexandre Costa skillfully brings the bird to life as he sculpts the statuette from gemstones; he uses green quartz for the head and body and crafts the erect crest and longer tail feathers from blue agate. The yellow hue of the calcite beak and shorter tail feathers provides a wonderful contrast. Gleaming brass feet add the finishing touch.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Despite his financial difficulties, the education of his children is always a priority. He works extremely hard crafting gemstone sculptures to be able to provide the education for his three children.

Alexandre has struggled with depression since 2017. On good days, he is able to work and create but, on bad days, he can't get out bed. Although this affects his family and income, it's difficult to overcome. His therapist recommends he continue working with stones, as it helps him relax. So his handcraft is a way of aiding in his recovery.

Alexandre Costa is a stone sculptor and a dedicated father. He is the sole means of support for his two children and he works very hard to provide them with what they need.

Alexandre Costa has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $800 and the most recent for $600.
