"Gifted artist"

I have purchased about 10 pyramids from this artist for myself and family. They are simply exquisite! Cesar is very talented at his craft. I have shopped on many sites online and stores in Arizona for such items, and nothing has come close in price or craftsmanship.

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."
