Denver Museum of Nature And Science

Last week we discovered some delightful Russian sculptures at the museum.  They were folksy themes, about a foot high. and quite delightful.  This one is of a painter and there was even a plaque telling the various stones that were used:

shoes: black jasper
pants, hat, face, handle: jasper
shirt: lapis
eyes: sapphire

  floor: agate
  bucket: petrified wood
  brush: agate, amethyst quartz
