In this hand made arpillera wall hanging, artisan Leonor Quispe of Peru brings to life the well-known Peruvian orchestral piece El Condor Pasa, or "The Condor Passes," popularized in the 1970's thanks to a rendition by Simon and Garfunkel. In the arpillera, an imposing condor flies over the Peruvian mountains and fields, while a smiling musician plays a panpipe, beguiling a herd of alpaca. The back of the wall hanging is solid white and has an attached multi-colored strap for hanging on the wall. Colorful and cheerful, this arpillera will brighten up any room.
