Description

To make coiled wool tapestries, Peruvian weavers use wool from sheep of the Andes, washed in a local river, carded and dyed. Blending different colors to create specific hues, they roll the wool fibers into long strands. Working on a loom, one artisan weaves each piece. The artisan creates the picture with only a drawing or photo as a guide. Artisan Amilcar Barzola Asthuhuaman says the Tree of Life shows how all living things are related.

    I have this on my wall, above my file cabinet which is between 2 bookcases. It's lovely. Most of the decorative items have spirals so it fits right in. I love what it adds to the room....
