This wall hanging is a fascinating study of the textile arts. By María Uyauri, it depicts her vision of an underwater world teeming with colorful tropical fish. Uyauri creates this beautiful wall hanging in intricate arpillería – embroidered appliqués of fabric cutouts hand-stitched to a background of cotton. Crafted in three dimensions, each figure is lavishly embroidered. A display rod can slip through an opening at the top.
