Details

Shaded by wide-brimmed hats, women arrange brilliant bouquets of roses, daisies and arum blossoms in the Peruvian sierra. Nilda Amaro Oscanoa portrays a peaceful hamlet high in the Andes on a tapestry woven by hand. She uses natural dyes derived from plants and insects and, once satisfied with the colors, she uses a type of spinning wheel to fill each bobbin with floss. After sketching her design on paper, she creates it in wool by carefully placing each weft (horizontal) thread on the handloom.

Titled "Vendedoras de flores" in Spanish.
