This unique museum quality piece is wearable art.
Or display it as a stunning wall hanging.
Or Both.

Shades of Plum, Lavender and Periwinkle combined with Indigo-dyed panels of jaspe  The jaspe panels depict traditional Maya designs: pine trees, corn, quetzal birds, nopal cactus and other geometric shapes.  

100% cotton threads in this shawl have been hand-dyed by the weaver using mainly native plant materials.

Woven with double threads for warmth and thickness.   

All efforts have been made to accurately photograph the colors of the weaving, but they still fall (very) short of the richness of the actual colors.
