I was so happy when my pyramid was received. The craftsmanship is amazing. The beauty and the extra smooth stone makes me want to hold it and reflect on receiving energy. I love this pyramid. Thank you Cesar Gonzales. You are a true artist!

I gave this to my husband and he loves it! The colors of the stones blend lovely together. My husband has this on his desk at work and is always getting compliments about his pyramid and how nice it looks on his desk. Dont hesitate to purchase this pyramid. It is very well made and lovely to look at and hold!

"Nice but could be better."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a nice piece but is just half of the size that I had imagined as it says it was a large piece. There were crack lines along both sides of the sculpture which I hope is just a natural occurrence of the stone and is not because it had been dropped and the piece would not break apart because of it. Otherwise I would give it a 5 star.

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."

This artist is working with some sort of disability ranging from mental or physical and includes conditions such as being handicapped physically, or perhaps having a condition such as autism. This is also awarded to artists that employ other artists with disabilities.

Cesar's workshop is well-respected in his community. He is able to give full-time employment to his workers. He credits the steady income and recognition that Novica sales give him with the stability and determination that enable him to continue to grow his workshop.

Cesar Gonzales has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $2050. Proceeds were used to buy stones and other raw materials he needs to increase production.

Cesar is constantly teaching and employing younger workers who are eager to learn from a master craftsman. Today he gives work to people who are the sole support of their families.
