The Artist - Indigenous Otomi Woman
The artist (pictured) is an indigenous Otomi woman who earns her living by selling embroidery pieces at an outside street market. The art form reflects the hopes and dreams of the ancestors of the Otomi people who developed this wonderfully colorful style of embroidery. These zoomorphic figures are embroidered on hand drawn outlines or stamped with color combinations varying from multi colored to a single tone.
