Open-winged butterflies cover all sides of this pretty rib-stitched piece. Nicely rounded shape tips open at the very top, rimmed with a single black row complimenting the butterfly body. The base displays a large star lined in black and set upon a gray background.
Pictorial motifs are inspired by Wounaan weavers natural surroundings. In fact, these designs often include local flowers, trees, birds, ocelots, jaguars, iguanas and other flora and fauna native to the Darien rainforest. Pictorial designs come in a variety of styles, some perfect renditions of the floral subject matter the weaver is conveying, and some an interpretation of the flora using angular shapes and shaded background.
