DescriptionTOUCAN COUPLE ON POLISHED LIT ROCK CRYSTAL BASE
Artist: Peter Müller
Stone Source: South Africa, Brazil & Worldwide
This pair of colorful Toucans looks like cartoon characters but are in fact accurate representations of these comical tropical birds. Their enormous and vivid beaks have been carved out of blue green Amazonite, red Jasper, orange Calcite and black Obsidian. Their bodies are Smoky Quartz, with yellow Quartz and pink Rhodonite accents, and are detailed down to the pinfeathers. With life-like intensity, they are in conversation with their beaks open and their bright Garnet eyes flashing; they have gold plated sterling silver feet and are standing on a large, polished Quartz prism that is slightly smoky in tone. The Quartz crystal rests in a lit Granite base that can be powered by 110 or 220 volts and runs energy efficient LED lights. Both Toucans stand 8½ inches high, the overall sculpture is 17 inches high and bears Peter Müller's unique collection #8977 and is in excellent condition.
