This is a stunning wall hanging, hand-embroidered in central/southern Mexico.  It's hard to pick a favorite part, but did you see the parent birds feeding their babies in the nest?  The tree cavity being inhabited by bees? The ants and butterflies? Peacocks?  A resplendent quetzal?  This beautifully hand-crafted textile would be a great acquisition for a birder, a nature lover, and/or a collector of museum-quality folk-art or textile art.  

More details:
   * Approx 38" wide x 40" high (note: these pieces are not perfectly rectangular. The embroidery process pinches the fabric in, creating a slight hourglass shape... i.e. the    piece is a bit more narrow halfway down)
   *Embroidered  on all-cotton muslin
   *Can be hand-washed with mild detergent.  Colors will not run.

I've been buying quality Mexican Folk Art directly from artisans since 1997, and it's one of those rare occupations where everybody wins:  The family who embroidered this particular piece is putting their daughter through college (this is a family first!) - and they are able to do so because they get top dollar for their work.  I thrive on finding these treasures and working collectively with the artisans (shared chiles rellenos & trips to Mexico are a nice bonus). And hopefully, this piece will bring lots of pleasure to whoever buys it and everyone else who gets to enjoy it.
Special Orders: Because the embroiderer and I work as partners, we are happy to take special orders. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
International Shipping:  I am happy to ship this outside of the United States. Because of its value, I prefer to ship it using an expedited service (DHL or Express Mail).  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
