Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Novica sales account for most of Cesar's income. It enables him to provide for his family, educate his children, take care of his health and provide full-time employment for other artisans. He is very grateful that his workshop has grown with Novica and for the security it has brought to his life.

"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."

"Very pretty"

My egg looked almost exactly like picture so i was not disappointed like i was with the round piece i also ordered. I realize these all come from nature so will be different. I still liked both so will keep them in my bedroom. The egg doesnt stand up by itself so i had to use some museum goop to help it stand.

"Not Satisfied"

I was very disappointed with this item. The egg did not stand up in it?s holder as pictured, nor did the second one I purchased. The coloring was dull and not close to what was represented in your online catalog ( I realize that these are all unique pieces and no two are the same.) This was my first purchase with which I was not satisfied. I did not want to be bothered with having to ship them back so I will just keep them in a bowl.

I have several of Cesar Gonzales bird sculptures and I admire his choice of gemstones and the way he sculpts the wings and other features of the birds.

Cesar's masterful creation of the onyx pyramid immediately endows and bestows grace, strength, and peace into my space. A true piece of art, with formidable soul, I am grateful for Cesar and the piece he created and shared ~
