Presenting an exquisite hand-sculpted treasure few have ever seen. It is that of a Macaw parrot with gold and jewels.
The breathtaking miniature artwork is done with gouache heightened with gold on wood with a black background. It is painted and modeled in high relief and inlaid with real precious stones to resemble the colorful long-tailed Macaw parrot bird.
The historic artwork is truly impressive by itself…but you will appreciate it even more when you get to hold and examine its richness under a magnifying glass.
Relief is a sculptural technique. The term relief is from the Latin verb levo, to raise. To create a sculpture in relief is to give the impression that the sculpted material has been raised above the background plane.
The dazzling clarity of the art is achieved by a special embossing technique that uses thousands of color dots to skillfully hand paint every detail of the subject. The end result is a dramatic portrait that is precisely sculpted with lifelike realism.
