Details

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.

"After the Flood"

Not only is this a beautiful piece of artwork it also gives the opportunity to serve as a conversation piece. Telling the story of Noah and the flood is a good one to tell anyone wanting to know more about the Old Testament and Genesis...in the beginning.
