This is a stunning wall hanging, hand-embroidered in central/southern Mexico.  It's hard to pick a favorite part but look at the doves carrying olive branches, the beehive with bees flying all around, the insects and little reptiles skittering on the tree trunk,  the peacocks, 2 resplendent quetzal birds, a pair of love birds... There's a lot of beauty woven into this tree of life. It's a wonderful 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.

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.

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 is working well these days).  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
