This wonderful owl sits in my study!”

Its truly lovely, although it is larger than heavier than I anticipated, so I had to find the right place for it! Since it stares a bit, it looks great in my workspace. Beautifully made.

Owl is beautifully carved, and the white stone has an aurora glow when the sunlight hits. I love the way it sits on my desk.

Profound Impact

Profound Impact

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."
