I'm still not sure exactly why I was so deeply moved by these primitive embroidered pieces made by the women of Tanivet, a non indigenous community on the outskirts of Oaxaca.
They came over to the Casa and we got a private showing of oh probably forty or so pieces.
One more amazing than the next.
And I wish I had photos of ALL of them.
. We all bought one and some people bought several. The women couldn't have been happier to make some serious cash.
Here they are with their pal and cultural cheerleader Marietta Bernstorff (on the right)
A great big Gracias to the women of Tanivet for sharing their artwork with us.
