Details

The delicate glow of yellow calcite suggests warm affection. Sculpted of natural stones, two birds perch protectively near their nest. Alexandre Costa carves the couple by hand, setting the macaw family side by side in a single sculpture. One bird features tail feathers of sodalite and rose quartz with a bright jasper beak. The other flaunts a fluorite and green quartz tail with a dolomite beak. They perch on a drusy amethyst base with feet fashioned of silver plated brass. The nest is fluorite while the eggs are shaped from rose quartz and crystal quartz.

"Ready to sing"

I have had the pleasure of purchasing many items from Novica and this is among my favorites. It arrived in excellent condition, carefully secure, and gift wrapped as well. When I opened it I was moved to tears, recalling my singing canary, Noel, when I was a child. This item is beautifully carved! I couldnt be more pleased! It looks just like the picture.

"Gorgeous Sculpture?the work of a gifted artisan."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

An outstanding depiction of a tropical bird, with meticulous attention to detail in the carving. The rose quartz is lovely and uniform in color. Feminine and very sweet looking bird with just the right amount of attitude in the tilt of her head. The artist has truly captured the spirit of this lovely bird.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Despite his financial difficulties, the education of his children is always a priority. He works extremely hard crafting gemstone sculptures to be able to provide the education for his three children.

Alexandre has struggled with depression since 2017. On good days, he is able to work and create but, on bad days, he can't get out bed. Although this affects his family and income, it's difficult to overcome. His therapist recommends he continue working with stones, as it helps him relax. So his handcraft is a way of aiding in his recovery.

Alexandre Costa is a stone sculptor and a dedicated father. He is the sole means of support for his two children and he works very hard to provide them with what they need.

Alexandre Costa has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $800 and the most recent for $600.
