Colorful Inca friezes house stylized doves in a tapestry designed by Zosimo Laura. Working with a traditional pedal loom, Laura weaves an admirable wool tapestry that showcases the textile traditions of Peru's Ayacucho region.
About the Artist: Peruvian artisan Zosimo Laura comes from a family of weavers in Ayacucho, renowned for its handicrafts. Like his grandparents and brothers, has works on a traditional handloom. Forced to abandon Ayacucho due to turmoil and violence, Zosimo and his family moved to an urban center where they faced innumerable obstacles. Nonetheless, his dedication has allowed him to succeed. His goal is to teach his children the textile art when they are old enough.
