The pulpo design (octopus) is mixed in with a geometric-lined collar. If you look closely you can see pulpo legs growing from one section of the straight black-lined collar to add a little fun. Each of the octopus has 8 legs- an incredible detail by weaver Darineth. This masterful coil construction work is created using thin shreds of Chunga palm fibers dyed into various colors, coiled over thicker Naguala palm. Vibrant and rich colors are all vegetal dyes created with roots, berries, leaves, river silt, and natural materials found in the abundant Darien rainforest.

Size and Technique: 10″ W x 8.5″ H, silk-stitch technique creating a soft, silky feel to the finished piece. 24 months in construction.
