The early 20th century saw the rise of the figurative sarape, tapestry-woven in Gobelin-style to show realistic scenes or portraits. This example celebrates the golden age of Mexican cinema. The protaganists, seen on horseback, are thought to be Jorge Negrete (1911-53) and Maria Feliz (1914-2002). It offers a romanticized vision of rural life on the great haciendas.
This is a new, 21st Century woven tapestry/blanket reproduction of the original.
Use as a bed throw, for picnics in the park, or as a wall tapestry.
