The colors of the dawn sky meet verdant mountains, conjured in a handloomed rug. Forming glowing crosses, the radiant motifs alternate in bands of dark and light tones along the length of the design. Zosimo Laura demonstrates an absolute mastery of his craft, transforming soft virgin wool into a work of art.
Titled "Cabezas de condores" in Spanish.
