"beautiful !"

My order came yesterday and I'm very happy with quality and craftsmanship. I hope to order again when I see the right sphere that I can't live without! I like the larger sizes of 3" or more.

"A beautiful gift"

I purchased this as a gift for my daughter-in-law and she loved it. Not only the beauty and serenity of the artistic creation but the symbolism of the stone.

"Lovely Owl"

Beautiful owl with strikingly colorful stone. Looks wonderful on my white shelf with ocean blue colored walls in the background. I get a happy feeling inside every time I look at the owl. I m so glad I made the purchase. He stands at the forefront of two other owl figurines.

"Billion year old remains turned into art."

The longer I have had this sphere, the more I appreciate its smooth details. I now have it attached as bannister-topper, and the black and bronze veining provide a sophisticated-looking contract to the white-painted wood.

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."
