In a dramatic and colorful composition, a trio of Andean men bow their heads, close their eyes, and coax plaintive notes of haunting beauty from their quenas, traditional flutes. Walter Paucar depicts them with clean line and contemporary flair. Using 90% sheep wool and 10% cotton tinted with natural and industrial dyes, he weaves an enchanting tapestry. The relleno technique permits him to add tufts of colored wool between the weft, or crosswise strands, creating the soft shading of a painting.

Titled "Los quenistas" in Spanish.

5 years ago I bought a lovely handembroiered wallhanging with lots of sunflowers. Still we love it, and it is noticed and commented by visitors and friends. Wish you all the best. Regards Anne May.
