Details

The sun shines brightly on an Andean fiesta. Known as Yunsa or Tumbamonte, this celebration usually takes place during carnival time. A tree is festooned with balloons, streamers and presents, and partygoers dance around the tree. Each one chops at the trunk with a hatchet until it falls, then everyone seizes the goodies from the branches.

María Uyauri creates the scene 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 of the wall hanging.

"Absolutely Wonderful!"

Thank-you Maria Uyaura for all your hard work, it is exquisite, I am delighted with it and although it depicts the wonderful Yunsa Festival in February - it will actually be taking pride of place at Christmas. Your workmanship is so skilled and utterly delightful, thank-you.
