The picture on this item does not appear to be wider than it is long. Is it correct that this tapestry is over 5 feet wide and only 2 feet tall?

Cerapio Vallejo's artistry has been featured in Business Week, Sunset magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle and on PBS Television. 'My art form was handed down to me from my parents and grandparents. My work is the result of my long experience and careful observation over the years. I draw inspiration from ancient Peruvian cultures, Andean village life, and our snow-capped mountains. I have faced many challenges during my life, and learned from them. The most difficult was during the 1980s when I was obliged to leave my house in Ayacucho with my family. Terrorism was bleeding my people to death. Artisans in my region were considerably affected when tourism halted. Even now that Ayacucho is at peace, we remain in our city home.'

The Hummingbird Song tapestry was a gift to my husband. He is enamored by the lovely, delicate and amazing birds. Since they are migratory birds here for a season, he feels happy with the gift of the Hummingbird tapestry to gaze on everyday. And, I'm very happy, too, displaying it in our study. Its colors and generous size add warmth and "enchantment" to the room. I believe it can add this to any room. Bird lover...tapestry lover!Read More
