DescriptionTRIO OF LAPIS MACAWS ON CRYSTAL BASE
Artist: Peter Muller
Stone source: Afghanistan & Brazil
This striking deep blue trio of Macaws are carved from the finest Afghani Lapis-Lazuli. They are perched upon a base consisting of a water clear Quartz crystal group, which is in turn, mounted upon a simple rock crystal plinth. Their Garnet eyes glisten with curiosity and their bright, gemmy Carnelian beaks contrast strongly with their deep blue Lapis bodies. They appear to be just gathering together for a chat. All are equipped with vermeil feet and the carving is extremely detailed. The longest bird measures 6 inches from tip to tail and the complete ensemble is 10 ½ inches high by 7 ½ inches by 6 inches. In excellent condition.
