This hand-hooked work of art was designed and crafted by Bartola Morales Tol, member of the Patanatic rug hooking group. This piece is unique and the design is the result of the artist’s creative vision. This special story rug expresses the artist's experience during the COVID-19 pandemic: "Before the pandemic situation that we're all living through, I only worked on my rugs. Now I am also planting vegetables and crops and I am raising chickens on our land. Since my daughter can't go to school, she helps me to water the plants and care for the chickens. We are more connected to our land." This composition is modeled after the form of indumentaria maya, the handwoven huipil and corte worn by Maya women. Made by hand in Guatemala. Material: Recycled secondhand clothing and cotton base cloth. This artwork was made using 40-45 recycled garments.
