DescriptionROSE QUARTZ COCKATOO COUPLE ON TOURMALINE QUARTZ BASE
Artist: Peter Muller
Stone source: Brazil
Two deep pink Rose Quartz Macaws are perched on a Tourmaline Quartz base as if caught in the middle of a courting ritual. One Macaw has both his wings and bright yellow crown feathers extended as if just alighting on the Quartz. This showoff has a wingspread of 9 ¾ inches and is 10 inches long and stands 8 7/8 inches high. His mate has her wings folded and measures 9 ¼ inches long, 3 1/8 inches wide and stands 5 ½ inches tall. Her pink Coral tongue is extended as if she is talking to him. They both have yellow Agate crown feathers, Garnet eyes and gold plated sterling silver feet. They are standing on a base of very dark Smoky Quartz that is shot through with pink Tourmaline. Overall sculpture dimensions are 15 ½ x 11 x 12 inches. Master carver Peter Muller has designated this as one of his premier carvings and given it collection number 8400. In pristine condition.
Estimate: $9,000 - $12,000.
