The “Lavender-Mauve Rose” is carved from a rare one time find in San Diego’s Anza-Borrego Desert.  The Rose itself, a single stone carving, is the largest I’ve carved and is approx. 4” High X 6” in Diameter.  The leaves are carved from the rarest of Green Alabasters and are structurally arranged into branches that dissemble for shipping.  The base upon which the carving is built is a rare Grey and White Striped Alabaster.  This is my 20th Rose in 37 years of carving.
