Wonderful Mexican table runner, hand embroidered by the Otomi Mazahua population in Mexico, depicting refined figures of stylized birds.
Curious note : the Otomi weaver creates and develops a communication system that allows her to share ideas, dreams, stories, feelings and experiences through symbols woven into the fabric. For example, the rich variety of birds usually portrayed in these fabrics are allegories for beauty, freedom and grace.
