XALITLA SHAWL WITH VELVET
Measures 70" x 21"
Design inspired on the “amate” paper of Xalitla, Guerrero. In each one of the towns of Mexico, celebrations summon up life through music, coq fighting, dances, flowers, and animals; but, in Xalitla, the whole town becomes itself transmuted and shaped into the amate paper. Ink is plain of syncretism, invading the empty spaces to form silhouettes dancing to the cadence of music. The art for the elaboration of this piece was performed by craftsman J. Guadalupe Pérez A
