Story Behind the art:

Update (June, 2019)"My name is Cesar Gonzales Pacheco, I was born in a small district called Pacapausa, which is located in the department of Ayacucho. I consider myself a very responsible man, generous and persevering. I believe that, in spite of all the difficulties you can get ahead and overcome tough times. "Without a doubt one of the darkest moments of my life was growing up without my father, since he died when I was only 2 years old. It was my mother who did the work of both father and mother at the same time; with her strength, she taught me the true value of a life that is a labor of love. She made me a good man and gave everything for me; I think I could never thank her enough. "I learned to carve stone from a friend. In turn, I taught my son and many of my workers the art of stone carving. When one of my artisans leaves to start their own workshop, I feel very proud. It means that the stone art of Peru will live. The stone carvings record the history of Peru and the Andes. Although we now use machinery to give life to our drawings, the stories that the stones tell and the reasons we incorporate those stories have been with us since pre-Inca times. I have been carving semi-precious stones for more than 30 years. Originally I would travel to the mines, but then I began to carve some leftover pieces. It was thanks to a dear friend who taught me, and I think I will never stop practicing. The years have given me great experience; they have taught me that only with firm steps and with perseverance are objectives achieved. My inspiration comes from what I love in nature-- animals, and the beautiful landscapes of the Andes. All these sources of energy are what I capture in my art. One of my dreams is to be able to continue growing next to my family. I hope that God gives me a lot of strength to continue working and carving the beautiful natural stones, which have been used since the time of our ancestors. I am passionate about my art, and I work in stone for the beauties that can be made with each of them, the naturalness and purity of the colors. I am very happy to be part of the NOVICA family. Thanks to them, I managed to raise my family and provide full-time employment for other artisans so they can also help their families."Original Artisan StoryBorn on February 20, 1962, Cesar Gonzáles has worked as a stone carver since 1988. Before that his job was in residential construction, building and finishing houses. But after learning the technique of stone sculpture in the workshop of a friend, he found he preferred it; the following year he became independent and began to create his own images. A married man, Gonzáles has a son and three daughters. The oldest girl shows the most interest in her father's art and even assists him. Gonzáles works with serpentine, rose manganese, calcite, celestite, red jasper, mottramite, chrysocolla, rhodochrosite and quartz. He travels to mines in the central sierra to acquire minerals and materials of all kinds. 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.
