God told Noah to build a huge ark and he obeyed. Then he brought all the animals of the earth aboard, male and female, two by two. They repopulated the world after the great flood. Leonor Quispe brings the Bible story to life in this charming appliqué wall hanging, depicting each creature in exquisite detail. She works in the traditional art of arpillera (patchwork) to create the piece. Each tiny figure is crafted in three dimensions and lavishly embroidered.
A display rod can be slipped through an opening at the top.
