    About the artist:

    'I was born in a city famous tapestries of intricate techniques are our tradition. I inherited my art from my ancestors; ever since I can remember I have seen every one of my relatives weaving: great-grandparents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and brothers. On occasion my mother, Eleuteria Oscanoa Montes, helps me to design and produce my weavings. She continues to serve as an inspiration and support.

    'I grew up amid looms and sheep's wool. From when I was little I have loved passing the thread through the loom, imagining a bedcover for my doll. As I grew up the game became an obligation - my brothers and I had to collaborate with our parents in order to complete the tasks that the handicrafts stores gave my parents. This is how I discovered my style.'

    • Treasured Art

      This tapestry is amazing and this is a piece of art I treasure. The wool is beautiful, the dyes are gorgeous, and the piece is exquisite; photos do not capture the rich colors or fine detail.

    • worth the wait

      Although this order came outside of the 16 day guarantee (it came 2 days late, but was able to be tracked), it is a soft wool tapestry that is just gorgeous--the digital rendition does not nearly capture the hand-dyed nuances of the fabric. We hung it in our main LR/DR area with taupe and orange-y wall colours. Item was packed v. well, sealed in plastic, then the outer tube, plus care instructions. Well worth the $$ spent for the amount of enjoyment and compliments we get re: it...thanks to NOVICA and overstock for a unique and beautiful work of art that helps sustain & support indigenous artists.
