Mujeres que llevan ollas de barro
In this painting, three women are shown carrying pots on their head, which are often used for harvests and to transport water. In the background, there are farmers holding pots and other items from the harvest. There is a raised texture to this piece on each pot which can take days to create. This raised texture is created using a tool to dab the paint on the surface and create a three dimensional appearance. The raised texture along with the intricate detail on each woman's clothing is what makes this piece so special and valuable.
