DescriptionRhodochrosite Cockatoo on Tourmaline & Quartz Base
Artist: Peter Müller
Stone source: Argentina & Brazil
This feathery cockatoo has been handcrafted out of Rhodochrosite from Argentina by talented artist Peter Müller. He measures a delightful 4.5 x 1.8 x 1.6 inches (11.5 x 4.5 x 4 cm). The cross-hatching and attention to detail is astounding on his bright red showy crest and plumage. He inquisitively looks out into his environment with Garnet eyes searching for food to consume with his curved Garnet beak. He sits perched on a Brazilian Tourmaline and Quartz base measuring 3.5 x 1.8 inches (9 x 4.5 cm) with his gold plated sterling silver feet. The whole sculpture then sits on a custom clear Quartz base.
Overall Measurements: 6.7 x 3.1 x 2.4 inches (17.0 x 8.0 x 6.0 cm)
Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000.
