DescriptionQUARTZ "DOUGHNUT" SCULPTURE
Handcrafted in Brazil
Depending on your childhood, this impressive abstract sculpture most likely represents: A. a Life-Saver, B. a doughnut or C. the field produced by a Tokamak fusion generator. Whatever you see, there is one thing that is certain about this piece: It required a very large piece of raw rock crystal to make something of this size. Water clear and polished to a brilliant finish, this toroidal treasure measures an impressive 19 ½ inches from edge to edge. The center hole is 7 7/8 inches in diameter. In cross-section the 'doughnut' tapers from around ¼ inch thick at the inner and outer edges, to around an inch thick in between. When placed upon its custom steel and Larvikite base, it stands 29 inches in height. This unique sculpture is in pristine condition and was the first of its type to be carved by this master Brazilian lapidary artist.
Estimate: $9,000 - $12,000.
