"Gorgeous Parrot!"

I just received this parrot sculpture, and it is even more beautiful in person. I did not realize it contained so many precious gems: the feathers are natural garnet and serpentine; the bird is crowned with chrysocolla; the beak is black onyx; the trunk is white onyx and pyrite. Absolutely lovely!

"Amazing representation of colorful birds."

The detail, color and texture is amazing in person. Cesar is a great artist who I will continue to follow his work. The packaging is beyond compare. The sculpture arrived in prefect condition.

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."
