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 arpillería – 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.
