Santa Catarina Palopo Woman's Huipil --- Incredible geomorphic designs of quetzals, butterflies,Tree of Life, corn, deer, dogs and other bird designs on this nicely brocaded huipil that was woven on a back-strap loom. The huipil has 3 panels and the base color is black that contrasts well with blues, greens and other colors of the brocade. Neck is finished with a button-hole embroidery.
Condition: Very good used condition. The huipil shows light wear and a few loose threads. Sides seams sewn closed (could be easily opened). Half of the panels are fringed others are selvaged finished. As with many Santa Catarina Palopo huipils, there is some uneveness to the length of the panels. It could be hemmed to a even length, if desired..
