    BLUE MACAW IN LAPIS ON ALBITE, MICA AND TOURMALINE BASE
    Artist: Peter Müller
    Stone Source: Brazil

    This large, majestic Macaw sits perched in a truly lifelike position on its exquisite mineral base. Looking as though it is about to call out, this lovely bird features wings fashioned in regal blue Lapis with intricate detailing throughout. Contrasting the striking azure blue of the wings is a sublime buttery yellow Mookaite breastplate which follows down through the inner feathering of the tail. Perched high atop its base and keeping watch over its surroundings, the bird has a rich jet black Obsidian beak and haunting Quartz with Onyx eyes. This impressive carving sits on an equally impressive base of sparkling diamond white Albite interspersed with pieces of blackish Schorl Tourmaline from small fibers to larger classic crystals. The stunning Macaw measures 15.5 inches (39.37 cm) from head to tail and sits on its rock home measuring 13.5 inches (33.02 cm). The overall sculpture measures 18 inches (45.72 cm) from top to bottom with the bird on the rock which is all atop a custom clear acrylic base that is 3 inches (7.62 cm) high, 11.75 inches (29.85 cm) wide and 9 ¾ inches (24.77 cm) deep. The overall piece measures 21 inches (53.34 cm) from top to bottom. This "one-of-a-kind" bird carving is identified by master artist Peter Müller's own collection number 9689.
