Women wearing the traditional apparel of their Maya villages kneel to bundle spring onions into bunches to sell. Mario Sergio Aviles details the rich embroidery, colorful weavings and their intent expressions in this beautiful oil portrait. "In Almolonga, farmers take advantage of every inch of land. There, it is common to find onion leaves coloring areas a cool mint green. The women bring them to market in baskets brimming with the serpentine and odorous onions. Seated on the ground, the tie them in bunches while chatting about their own lives and their neighbors," the Guatemalan artist explains.

"A Beautiful, and Meaningful, Work of Art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This painting gives me great joy. I love the colors and the composition. The artist, Mario Sergio Aviles, created a powerful image, filled with meaning. The subject reminds me of the seasons of the church, the seasons of life, and Gods gifts: children, rain, faith, forgiveness, and hope. Also, the canvas arrived ready to hang and was well protected for transport. This beautiful painting will be treasured.
