Handmade Macaw Sculpture This handmade macaw has been carved from hard type rocks including quartz, soapstone, red jasper, sodalite, reconstituted turquoise, and onyx. Please refer to the photos to visually appreciate the beauty of this macaw. Dimensions: Base to head: 12 in Weight: 4 lb Please keep in mind that each bird sculpture is unique. The bird you see in the images is the same you will receive in the mail. Our artisans draw their inspiration from the feathered fauna of the Amazon rain forest. The first step in the sculpting process is to select the appropriate combination of rocks. This combination gives each bird its beautiful colors. The rocks are cut and glued together; up to this point the bird is still unrecognizable. The next step is to sculpt the rough rocks into the desired shape. Following the sculpting step, tail, crest, claws, and beak are attached. The next step involves sculpting feather detail on the body and tail. The bird is then coated with a protective layer of lacquer. Finally, the claws are inserted into a base which consists of an onyx platform glued to another rock, usually quartz, agate, or calcite. The next stage in the life of our birds is one week at sea sailing from South America to America. This stage is particularly hazardous and a few birds don't make it in one piece. Once they arrive on port, either LA or New York, our birds are placed on terrestrial transport on route to Texas. From here we ship our birds to happy clients across the United States.
