Details

A universal symbol for power, pyramids have been treasured as liaisons between our world and the life beyond by many cultures across the globe. Cesar Gonzalez handcrafts this petite but gorgeous piece from a magical combination of serpentine, leopardite, white onyx, red jasper, calcite, and black onyx.

The artisan proudly continues with Peru's ancient tradition of stone carving from his workshop in the Ayacucho region. He takes advantage of the rich mineral resources found in the Peruvian Andes and frequently travels to the sierra in search of the colorful materials that inspire his pieces.

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."
