Details

In a dramatic and colorful composition, a trio of Andean men bow their heads, close their eyes, and coax plaintive notes of haunting beauty from their quenas, traditional flutes. Walter Paucar depicts them with clean line and contemporary flair. Using 90% sheep wool and 10% cotton tinted with natural and industrial dyes, he weaves an enchanting tapestry. The relleno technique permits him to add tufts of colored wool between the weft, or crosswise strands, creating the soft shading of a painting.

Titled "Los quenistas" 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.
