Leonor Quispe turns her eye to Peru's Amazon region, teeming with livestock and tropical plant life. Monkeys frolic in the treetops where colorful macaws build their nests. Celebrating biodiversity, the artisan works in the traditional art of arpillera (patchwork) to create this delightful wall hanging. Each tiny figure is crafted in three dimensions and lavishly embroidered.
A display rod can be slipped through an opening at the top.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
