Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Novica sales account for most of Cesar's income. It enables him to provide for his family, educate his children, take care of his health and provide full-time employment for other artisans. He is very grateful that his workshop has grown with Novica and for the security it has brought to his life.

"I learned to carve stone from a friend. In turn, I have taught my son and many of my workers the art of stone carving. When one of my artisans leaves to start a workshop of their own, I feel great pride. It means that the stone art of Peru will live on. Stone carving records the history of Peru and the Andes. Even though we now use machinery to bring our hand drawings to life... the stories the stones tell and the motifs we incorporate have been with us since pre-Inca times."

This artist is working with some sort of disability ranging from mental or physical and includes conditions such as being handicapped physically, or perhaps having a condition such as autism. This is also awarded to artists that employ other artists with disabilities.

Cesar's workshop is well-respected in his community. He is able to give full-time employment to his workers. He credits the steady income and recognition that Novica sales give him with the stability and determination that enable him to continue to grow his workshop.

Cesar Gonzales has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $2050. Proceeds were used to buy stones and other raw materials he needs to increase production.

Cesar is constantly teaching and employing younger workers who are eager to learn from a master craftsman. Today he gives work to people who are the sole support of their families.

This artist striving to supporting their own or their family's basic needs and improve their livelihood.

"Extraordinary!"

Immediately upon opening my package, I was captivated by the spiritual energy of this sphere. Mr. Gonzales has out done himself with this beautiful piece. I look forward to purchasing more of his work to add to my metaphysical collection.

"Intuition stone sculpture"

One of the best looking spheres I have bought from C?sar. My stone had more copper in it. One of the sides of the sphere looks amazing with the red/black/blue/green. The finish had some cracks but it was very smooth overall.

"No two stones alike"

Love these. I have several stones from this artist and due to nature no two stones are ever the same.

"Disappointed. One side dull grey. Not as shown."

It doesn't look good on the onyx stand. One side of the sphere has different shades of green with some brown and no blues. The other half of the stone looks like it was thinly painted with a grey coating that wasn't polished off with a few streaks of white and green under the grey. The grey side isn't shiny like the green side. It's dull and has some chips with white in the chips. It doesn't look like the whole sphere is chrysocolla. I can't use it on the stand because, with half of it light, dull grey it doesn't look good. The other half is pretty but has no blue like a good specimen would normally have. It looks like you could eliminate the dull grey by polishing it off. I would have sent it back sooner but was ill. It might be too late now.

"Intuition Sphere"

I love the contrast between the deep turquoise sphere and the brown base, all sculpted by Caesar Gonzales. It's sitting beautifully inside my curio cabinet.

I have several of Cesar Gonzales bird sculptures and I admire his choice of gemstones and the way he sculpts the wings and other features of the birds.
