Mexico's Sierra Family demonstrates their artistic sensibility with this extraordinary pear figurine. They carve onyx into the delicious fruit, expertly highlighting the stone's natural grain through the sculpture's smooth contours. A shiny brass leaf and stem complete the sculpture's tempting allure.
