Description

    Mookaite Horse Head
    Artist: Luis Quispe Aparicio
    Stone Source: Australia

    This one-of-a-kind horse sculpture has been meticulously carved out of a single piece of Mookaite from Australia. Mookaite is a multi-colored stone that can be manipulated to create high-end, outstanding carvings. Here a horse head has been carved with accurate detail capturing the splendid anatomy of this elegant creature. Its flowing mane features much of the red Jasper found in this silicate mineral. Present also are calming tones of mustard yellow, deep plum purple, brown and white all swirling to create an amazing piece of art. Adding a sense of movement and elegance to any room, this sculpture is in pristine condition and will catch anyone's eye. This is an offering no one should refuse!
