Contemporary Gemstone Sculptor and Native Peruvian Luis Alberto Quispe Aparicio has taken the world be storm with his incredible meticulously sculpted SOLID GEMSTONE SCULPTURES without the use of any sort of pottery/metal/wood/etc base or structure on which the gemstones are applied- This Piece and ALL of his pieces are made ENTIRELY Of SOLID Pieces Of Carved Gemstones!
In this case, a hulking piece of Solid 'Green & Yellow Orbicular Jasper' was used to create the piriform main central body of the piece, with the spiky black dotted green-leaf top having been carved from a chunk of Solid 'Black-Speckled Green Zoisite' (A favorite of the artist, also used in his Dragon Tea Set as the massive free-form tray, which sold at auction in 2014 for US $219,600!!!), and finished off with a bed of small, delicate 18k Gold Vermeil leaves at the bottom on which the heavy body rests- making for a complete piece that seems strikingly realistic yet simultaneously incredibly imaginative and original.
