"Nice Little Sculpture"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am fond of birds, in particular the exotic ones. Love their colors, and this little sculpture fits on my mantel perfectly. Very nice workmanship, but also delicate. The tail did drop off, but I was able to re-glue it back in place. Otherwise, I would have awarded this purchase 5 stars.

I am really impressed with the detail that Mr. Gonzales uses in his art. The blue crested bird is small , but very well done,. This piece goes with my bird collection in my curio cabinet in my den, along with some other pieces I have purchased from him. Great work!

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."
