Signed Saturnino Oncebay Peruvian Weaver's Kilm with butterflies and caterpillars in natural dye zig zag design

Signed Peruvian Tapestry - 4'1 x 4'1

Regular price $750.00 Sale

Handwoven Peruvian tapestry woven in two strips and seamed in the center.

It features fantastical shapes of caterpillars, butterflies, and spiders in soft cochineal  purples, undyed browns and greens with pops of yellow. Perhaps referencing life, death and transcendence into the supernatural world. Very soft and lightweight, can double as a multifunctional textile or wall tapestry. Notice the weaver's signature - Oncebay -  in the left-hand corner. The Oncebays are a multigenerational family of weavers still operating today.

In very good condition, with two holes, as pictured.
