Woven by hand, this colorful table runner features geometric motifs. They depict the Maya numerical system. Each dot represents one, bars each represent five and the oval with a line through it stands for zero. Crafted by Miguel Hernandez, the images appear in white on red.
Miguel first learned to read and write when he was 18, which is 11 years after he learned to weave. Using a handloom has always been a big part of his family's life and he now has more than 20 years of experience creating beautiful hand-loomed products. He was taught by his parents and preserves the tradition by teaching those in his community.
Two of his children are in high school and the eldest is attending the university.
