Story Behind the Art:
Peruvian artisan Cesar Gonzales has worked as a stone carver since 1988. Of his four children, the oldest girl shows the most interest in her father's art and even assists him. Gonzales works with serpentine, rose manganese, calcite, celestite, red jasper, mottramite, chrysocolla, rhodochrosite and quartz. 'I work in stone because of the beautiful things that can be made with each kind,' he says. 'I like stone's naturalness and purity of color.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

I don't know what I was thinking, but I didn't check what the actual size or the product was. The picture was probably as close to ther product as physically possible! it appeared to be at least 4" in diameter, but was actually 2". When the box arrived, I was thinkiing they only sent 1, but after opening the box, there were in fact 3 in it! They are cute, but I was looking for more dramatic then cute. Live and learn! I will say that this is the FIRST time, EVER, that I had been dis-appointed with an Overstock.com purchase!Read More
Bought it and the singing bowl as a Christmas gift for someone who has everything. So happy to be a part of the global artisan community! Quality and Craftsmanship are excellent!Read More
I feel like this item was deceptively photographed and dimensions were not specified. It is a very small piece. The sphere measures 1-1/2" in diameter, the base is 1/4" high and 1/5-8" in width. The total measurement of the piece as displayed is 1-7/8" in height. That being said it is a beautiful piece and that is why I rated it 4 stars. I kept it because it is lovely but could not display it where it was intended which is disappointing.Read More
Unbelievable! This is so small, marble size. So not what I was expecting. Everything else from overstock has been Great! VERY DISAPPOINTED in this!!Read More
I expected this to be a much larger ---like the size of a baseball. I looked back after it arrived and could not find dimensions. Not even the size of a doorknob. I was suckered with this one. Live and learn.Read More
little smaller than I thought, but beautifully made. Lovely piece.Read More
