Details

Vibrant symbols of a culture rich in art and mysticism, four diamonds appear in Zapotec cosmogony as the "eye of God." Each angle represents the cardinal points, the paths of life. The center leads to one's inner self. Mario Chavez recreates Zapotec artistry with virgin wool and natural dyes, creating a mesmerizing rug in shades of green, red and warm brown.
