Details

César González builds an obelisk of mystic splendor by aligning the healing powers of onyx, jasper, aragonite and serpentine. Using manuals tools, Gonzalez is able to cut and polish the gemstones to lustrous perfection. Onyx is said to promote increased vigor, tenacity and guidance through meditation and dreams. Jasper in turn brings relaxation and emotional healing, while serpentine inspires memories from past lives. Aragonite is believed to foster truth as well as inner understanding.

Profound Impact

Profound Impact

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."
