DescriptionRuby Bears on Quartz
Artist: Luis Quispe Aparicio
Stone Source: Tanzania and Brazil
This sculpture depicts a scene with two young bear cubs frolicking upon a "glacier." The cubs have been methodically carved out of dark purple Ruby from Tanzania with patches of green Zoisite. They have been carved in such a way that their fur is presented in very great detail. They are laying on top of an undulating clear Rock Crystal from Brazil, which has been shaped with a sense of motion. Appearing to gaze out into their environment with Ruby eyes surrounded by gold vermeil, this duo is clearly up to something. This creative carving is in pristine condition and will add sense of delight to any space.
