Details

Inspired by Peru's Amazon region, Cesar Gonzáles creates a brilliant macaw. Sculpted of semiprecious gems, the work takes advantage of the stones' natural colors and grain. Gonzáles selects serpentine, jasper and sodalite for the colorful feathers. White calcite surrounds the eyes and chrysocolla crowns the black onyx beak. The bird perches on a white calcite trunk with copper feet.

"Dream Bird"

Museum quality carving! Mr. Gonzales is a Master Artist. The way he can turn stone into feathers, complete with every detail is absolutely amazing! His Macaw is a magnet. Its beauty and unique personality draws us out on the patio ledge to admire it again and again. Wouldn?t be surprised if it flies around our house while we are sleeping!

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."
