DescriptionANIMATED SODALITE MACAW ON ALBITE WITH MICA
Artist: Peter Muller
Stone source: World-wide
A life-like, and almost life-size, representation of a Macaw preening his 'underwing' feathers: a pose any parrot owner is quite familiar with. The body of this busy feathered friend is composed of deep blue Sodalite, and he has golden-yellow Calcite breast, inner wings and tail feathers. The head is green Aventurine accented by black Dolomite and white Quartz cheeks and a black Onyx beak. His vermeil feet are perched upon a mixed Clevelandite and Muscovite Mica aggregate that looks remarkably like a distorted snowman. The overall dimensions of the Macaw are 14 ½ inches from head to tail, giving the complete sculpture a height of 16 inches, a width of 9 inches and a depth of 6 ½ inches. In excellent condition, with detailing down to the pin feathers, the entire sculpture is mounted on a handpolished acrylic base and bears lapidary artist Peter Muller's collection #1-8642.
