DescriptionTOUCAN COUPLE ON QUARTZ
Artist: Peter Müller
Stone Source: Brazil and Worldwide
Toco Toucans (Ramphastos toco) are the largest species of Toucan. Artist Peter Müller has skillfully rendered these fascinating birds in stones from around the world: their bodies are composed of black Obsidian, white Quartz, pink Rhodonite and blue Dumortierite; while their enormous beaks are made of orange Eosite, blue Dumortierite and black Obsidian. They are resting their gold plated sterling silver feet on a large, well terminated, colorless Quartz cluster. Bearing his unique collection #8870, these lifelike, and almost life-size, Toucans are 8½ inches tall from their beaks to the end of their tail feathers. This large sculpture stands 19¾ inches high overall, and is 7¼ inches deep and 10¾ inches wide. In excellent condition.
