An Andean woman collects the sunflowers she's carefully looked after in order to sell them at the various village markets. Surrounded by green fields and tall trees, she lives in Peru's Ancash department and inspires this wall hanging by Leonor Quispe. She designs and sews the cotton arpillería appliqué composition, her artistry evident in the miniscule details of her work.
A display rod (not included) can be slipped through an opening at the top.
