From Guatemalan artisan Marybel González comes a colorful angel wall hanging. A dentist by profession, Marybel threw herself into handicraft work full time as a way of coping with personal hardship. Now, she would like to help other women like herself. She says women "...are affected by any number of conditions such as domestic violence, harassment, and gender discrimination, and that is why I am trying to create opportunities for work that has dignity." Handcrafted, this wall decor incorporates natural fibers such as recycled jute for the angel wings and maguey, or "agave americana," cord for the woven strap in the back. The angel is made from manta, a type of cotton cloth, and covered in front by upcycled cotton textile in orange hues. A matching heart is placed over the angel's head.
This is an adorable angel and so well made. She will brighten any room where she is hung with her colorful fabric. This is my second purchase from Marybel Gonzalez and I love her work. Thanks Novica for connecting us with such a talented artisan. Rochelle 3-26-18
