Details

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.

"Gorgeous!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This wall tapestry is such a quality piece that I hate to have to return it. Unfortunately, the colors are much more vibrant than I anticipated and just wont work in the room it was intended for. I will continue to explore other items made by this artisan.

"A truly magnificent piece!"

The tapestry just arrived and, although I originally planned to incorporate it as a wall hanging, I have placed it under my dining table which has a glass top and is surrounded by six black leather chairs - it is truly magnificent and I have already had compliments!
