Artist: Peter Müller
Stone Source: Madagascar, Brazil & Worldwide
Three life-like Macaws are situated on a cluster of three Quartz crystals. They are composed of extremely fine, uniform teal-blue Amazonite. In addition; they possess Garnet beaks and eyes, Coral tongues, white Marble facial patches, and gold-plated sterling silver feet. The first bird, with its wings folded, is 9 ½ inches long and 2 ¼ inches wide. He is greeting the other two birds who are landing with their wings outspread. The one that has his head cocked slightly, as if listening to the greeting, is 10 inches from head to tail with a 6 ¾ inch wingspan. The third Macaw is showing off his treasure: a pink Tourmaline crystal clutched in one foot while he is landing on the other - he is 9 ¾ inches long and also has a 6 ¾ inch wingspan. The overall sculpture measures an impressive 19 ½ inches high, 15 ½ inches wide and 8 inches deep and has an acrylic base that measures 7 ½ x 6 ¾ x 1 ¾ inches. Overall condition is very fine and it bears Peter Müller's unique collection number "8631".
Estimate: $8,000 - $10,000.
