The Peruvian Luis Alberto Quispe represents the second generation of a family of gemstone carvers, an art that dates back to the pre-Babylonian period. The boldness of his designs, the quality of the gemstones that he uses and his technique influenced by the refinement of jewelry-making are expressed superbly in his impressive work.
The peacock is a possessor of some of the most admired human characteristics, and is a symbol of integrity and the beauty we can achieve when we endeavor to show our true colors.
In collaboration with master stone carver, Luis Alberto, L'Aquart and Maison S.T. Dupont have created the magnanimous collections with hand carving the Peacock.
Fashioned from bronze with yellow gold finish, sublimed with Lapis Lazuli, a Labradorite cabochon and Obsidian base.
This particular lighter is a prototype, limited edition X/X. It comes with generic ST Dupont packaging, as it was created to be the studio piece for photography, but not for the public market. We now exclusively have this prototype available for only the most serious collectors.
