"Morenitas Collection" Guajira y Tapiz. This Guajira or Wayuu lady shows one of the icons of my birth city: Maracaibo, Venezuela.
The piece depicts a Wayuu lady in a traditional dress or "manta" showing a representation of a typical "Tapiz" or tapestry design.
Around the sides of the dress or "manta" are written part of the "Warrior" poem by Nisha Pratap:
She was shatteredlike stars on the Andromeda.Indeed, a magnificent mess it seemedThrough the fog and pain,the fire in her burnt brighter...Original acrylic painting on 4 x 12 x 1.5 inches gallery wrapped canvas.Artist signature on the front.
