Details

Decorated using dyes extracted from various trees and plants, this tapestry depicts a picturesque street within the town of Pisac in the state of Cuzco. In the immediate foreground, an Andean woman is seen as she carries an immense bundle of yellow flowers upon her back. The elevated road in the illustration affords a dramatic view of the red-walled houses with thatched roofs. Scattered trees of all sorts adorn the hilly landscape surrounding the town, while the mountains in the distant background meet the majestic sky above. Walter Paucar Velarde weaves this magnificent tapestry on a traditional handloom, expertly transforming wool into a textile masterpiece in the style of San Pedro de las Cajas.

Titled "Camino de Pisac II" in Spanish.

I bought this purse for a friend?s birthday. She loves it. Very nice weave and pattern. Interior is sturdy. My friend?s college-age daughter gives it a big thumbs-up for authentic, cool style. Kudos to the artist- a great item!

"Music to my eyes"

The handwork is truly spectacular. It is a quality tapestry and is blocked in a perfect rectangle. The colors are more muted than the online picture but they are still vibrant.
