Description

    Lapis Lazuli Free-Form
    Afghanistan

    This huge Lapis free-form sculpture really speaks for itself. However, there is more than meets the eye with this one, and there is an interesting dichotomy here. One side features the stunning characteristic electric blue hue so coveted with this material, while the other side showcases rough creamy white Calcite with large patches of glimmering gold Pyrite. The two sides come together beautifully to create this sublime sculpture. With each gaze, something new is spotted such as the "streams" of white Calcite within the bright blue Lapis or the veins of the sparkling Pyrite. This semi-precious stone monolith is in excellent condition, and its appealing shape will add a sense of drama to any room. This is highly decorative and attractive installation piece.
