Details

This colorful wall hanging is a fascinating study in working with wool. "I used a lot of details in this piece," María Uyauri explains. "This shows the process in the Andes. Sheep are sheared, the wool is washed and dyed, then spun into yarn." In the foreground, a woman weaves on a backstrap loom.

Uyauri creates this beautiful wall hanging in intricate arpillera – embroidered appliqués of fabric cutouts hand-stitched to a background of cotton. Crafted in three dimensions, each figure is lavishly embroidered. A display rod can slip through an opening at the top.

"After the Flood"

Not only is this a beautiful piece of artwork it also gives the opportunity to serve as a conversation piece. Telling the story of Noah and the flood is a good one to tell anyone wanting to know more about the Old Testament and Genesis...in the beginning.

My wife has rescued 100s of animals that would have been destroyed otherwise. This is a thank you from them in a way that they cant express.
