Lumbering across the snowy landscape, a polar bear carries home his prize — a salmon, source of sustenance and energy. Alexandre Costa carves the shaggy white bruin by hand of natural calcite, and sculpts the fish of jasper.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Despite his financial difficulties, the education of his children is always a priority. He works extremely hard crafting gemstone sculptures to be able to provide the education for his three children.

Alexandre has struggled with depression since 2017. On good days, he is able to work and create but, on bad days, he can't get out bed. Although this affects his family and income, it's difficult to overcome. His therapist recommends he continue working with stones, as it helps him relax. So his handcraft is a way of aiding in his recovery.

Alexandre Costa is a stone sculptor and a dedicated father. He is the sole means of support for his two children and he works very hard to provide them with what they need.

Alexandre Costa has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $800 and the most recent for $600.

"To bear upon the ice of life"

Well carved with a warmth only a polar bear could have. He will not share his catch, still a special peace of a special world
