This is a fabulous carving sharing the joy of the Albuquerque balloon Fiesta. There are four balloons carved from natural stones ascending the mountains, which represent the Sandia Mountains around Albuquerque. Ron’s careful attention to details emphasize even the basket designs of the gondolas. The veriscite balloon hangs from a pin and moves. This beautifully detailed carving captures the essence of the balloon fiesta perfectly!
