This long decorative cuadro depicts the jungle, where Vero, the artist, has created a forest of bright birds nestled in the leaves and branches of the trees. Toucans and parrots animate the scene, while bright blue water filled with white flamingos and fish flows through the the picture. This cuadro was made in the Manos Ancashinas workshop.
Cuadros are Peruvian embroidered and appliquéd wall hangings that depict life in the shantytowns outside of Lima. They are sewn by hand by women and document their lives and struggle for survival. The cuadros focus on the experiences of women: claiming land, building homes, collecting and preparing food, protesting injustice, marching for peace. They are documents of hope and courage, written in bright colors and scraps of material.
TO DISPLAY CUADROS
Cuadros can be displayed by using velcro, by framing in a shadow box frame, or by adding a fabric sleeve to the back and inserting a dowel.
