Huichol yarn painting
Alejandro de la Rosa
Nayarit, Mexico, c. 1970's
Yarn pressed into beeswax on plywood
(24" x 24")
This 24 X 24 yarn painting is by another master artist of the 1970's, Alejandro de la Rosa. It came from the same collection as the ones by Cresencio Perez Robles.
This picture was made in the 1970's of wool yarn pressed onto wax spread on a wooden board. Today yarn paintings are made of acrylic yarn. On the back the artist wrote the meaning of the piece in both Huichol and in Spanish and it is signed by the artist.
