Designed and crafted by Deborcio Choquecahua of Peru, this beautiful alpaca blend tapestry is the artisan's interpretation of the Nazca monkey. The early inhabitants of the Nazca region of southern Peru would use the shape of the monkey's spiral tail to represent the constellation we call Ursa Major. The Nazca monkey's hands are specifically placed to mark the relationship of additional stars to the Ursa Major constellation during the rainy season. The artisan uses colors that transition in an ombre effect from gold to brown for the hummingbird, and uses a similar transition of color in the background from deep brown to near white, giving the illusion that the hummingbird is aglow.
