The Suri Tapestry
This hand-woven tapestry features the Suri (known as Darwin's Rhea in English). A flightless bird similar to an ostrich or emu found in the northwestern high plains, and Patagonian desert. In Andean lore, the bird symbolizes the earth.
This tapestry was woven in Jujuy, Argentina, on a traditional loom using lambswool that is spun and dyed by hand. The asymmetries and beauty marks are part of what make this artisanal piece so unique, and in our eyes, so perfect.

Fits perfect in my room. Thanks!
Even more lovely in person. The colors are rich and the wool is incredibly soft and well woven. I'm giving it as a Christmas gift to my husband but can't wait for him to open it so we can hang it in our home! True artisanship and care went into every part of this and it shows.
