    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.'

    • Beautiful but teeney tiny

      This piece is really enchanting but it is very small so check the size before ordering. Wish it was bigger so it would show better.

    • Dis-allusional

      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 purchase!

    • SMALL Nice Piece

      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.

    • Way too small

      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.
