Mujeres tejiendo juntas
In this painting, two women in traditional clothing are weaving fabrics side by side using a backstrap loom with balls of yarn at their feet. Weaving tejidos (fabrics) has a long history in Guatemala, and many Guatemalans rely on weaving to make their own clothes and to sell to others. This painting includes incredibly intricate detail such as the women's clothing, hair, and fabric design, which took the artist weeks to create. Bring a central element of Guatemala's culture and history into your home by purchasing this piece of art.
