Framed in rays of lightning, tocapu images descend in dignified diagonals. These geometric forms enclosed in squares are believed to have been an ancient form of writing. Reserved for the tunics of the elite, they figured in ancient Andean textiles. This extraordinary tapestry is hand-loomed by David Laura Zanabria. A rod can be slipped through a hem at the top.
Titled "Mosaico" in Spanish.
David Laura Zanabria has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $400 and the most recent for $600. Proceeds were used to purchase additional wool and dyes for his weaving business.
