Ruby Mice with Pink Opal Cheese--"Bad Guys Never Get Caught"
By Luis Alberto Quispe
A whimsical lapidary composition consisting of a pair of mice carved of Tanzanian ruby. One of the mice is climbing a ladder made of tiger's eye quartz, the other mouse is poised atop a "slice" of Emmanthaler cheese made of pink Andean opal. The kickboard is made of Bolivian stromatalite which rests upon a wood parquet floor.
