"What a sweet little bird!"

This arrived in the mail several days ago and I have placed it on an end table in my living room. I find myself looking at it often. It is truly a beautifully carved piece. Thank you, Cesar!

"Beautiful Gemstone Pyramid"

I purchased this pyramid as a gift for one of my girlfriends & she absolutely loves it. She says it s a perfect size (it fits in the palm of the hand) & she has it staged on a table in a central part of her home. She passes by it multiple times a day & says that each time she looks at it she smiles and breathes a bit deeper! The pyramid is well made. It s a nice weight & looks much more expensive than it is. The gemstones are gorgeous, so smooth & they fit together perfectly. Cesar s choice of colors for each of the different pyramids he creates are beautiful & would go with any decor. Thank you Cesar for your beautiful creations!!

"Had to Get My Own!"

A while ago, my brother saw this pyrite ball on NOVICA and immediately wanted it. When it arrived in the mail, we were so amazed by how beautiful it was. The pyrite ball is solid and pretty heavy, and the texture is so sparkly with the inner faceted pyrite peeking out. I couldnt stop admiring my brothers new figurine that I eventually decided to purchase the exact same pyrite ball for myself. Keep up the awesome craftsmanship, Cesar!

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

"I learned to carve stone from a friend. In turn, I have taught my son and many of my workers the art of stone carving. When one of my artisans leaves to start a workshop of their own, I feel great pride. It means that the stone art of Peru will live on. Stone carving records the history of Peru and the Andes. Even though we now use machinery to bring our hand drawings to life... the stories the stones tell and the motifs we incorporate have been with us since pre-Inca times."
