Shaded by wide-brimmed hats, women harvest brilliant bouquets of sunflowers and arum blossoms in the fertile Peruvian sierra. Walter Paucar Velarde portrays this colorful scene in a beautiful tapestry woven by hand. Carefully placing each weft (horizontal) thread individually, he creates beautiful portraits of Andean charm.
