Artist: Peter Müller
Stone Source: Brazil and Worldwide
The California Quail, Callipepla californica, is the state bird of California and artist Peter Müller has faithfully captured all of the colors and patterns of his plumage. This male Quail is on alert, standing guard while his covey is eating. He has been composed by the judicious use of Labradorite, Ocean Jasper, Obisidian, Lapis and Mahogany Obsidian and has gold plated sterling silver feet. Extremely detailed and lifelike, and almost life-size, his lookout perch is a base of colorful Tourmaline in matrix. He bears the unique collection #8887, and measures 6¼ inches high. Overall, the sculpture is 9 x 9¾ x 6 inches and is in excellent condition.
