Story Behind the Art:

'This is a city market,' Maria Uyauri says. 'This is a daily reality in Peru.'

'I'm Maria Uyauri Celis and I was born in Lima, Peru. One day while talking with a friend and neighbor, I mentioned that I wanted to work. She belonged to a women's support group. I remember a German woman came to our group and helped us with design. Once she held a contest and let us choose any theme. I chose 'The Peruvian Jungle.' She liked it a lot and I won first prize.

One day, we women got together and I decided that with the little bit of money we each could contribute, we could buy bolts of fabric and spools of yarn and thread. With these materials, we created our first pieces to sell.

But eventually we came to have a lot of different opinions in our group. This helped me realize that it was time to work by myself. By then, I had wings and could fly on my own.'

    This item is really beautiful and the detail is really impressive. It looks exactly as pictured and the colors are really vibrant. I do feel like it's somewhat incomplete in that it needs to be framed or properly hung, but regardless, still highly recommended!
