Details

The smooth circumference of a pyrite sphere reveals a richly textured grain reflecting the singular creativity of Cesar Gonzáles. Fascinated with natural gemstones, he sculpts the polished globe by hand and sets it on a base of black onyx.

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."
