Story Behind the Art:
Anita Altamirano was born in Ambato, Ecuador. She owns a factory where several native Ecuadorians from a tribe called 'Salaca' handcraft and hand-weave each individual piece. The 12,000 Salasaca people live in the center of the Andes in Ecuador and speak Kichwa. The Salasacas work principally in agriculture and indigenous art, which they learn at a very young age. One identifiable cultural characteristic of the Salasacas is their tapestries with hand-woven designs and motifs. Many tapestry designs tell their life stories. These tapestries are all handmade of natural wool, spun, dyed and woven. Creations depict the culture and traditions of the native tribes in Ecuador.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

True to description, exactly what I expected except the background is more of a forest green rather than the teal it looks to be in the picture. But I love it and it has gotten many compliments so far - I hung it in my office.
