Size: 150x200cm 5x6.5ft
Weaver: Lazo Hipólito family
Materials and methods: criollo sheep wool hand dyed with colorfast aniline dyes using an exhaustive method. Handwoven on a Zapotec style loom of the 16th century adapted from European styles. Woven using a 7 threads per inch reed.
Design patterns and symbols: this rug depicts the water pattern, the ace of elements.
The word for water in Zapotec is "Niís" this is the root word used for many other words. For instance Níís is the word for Mazorca (the corn still in the husk). I have explained in other rugs how the corn plant help us unite heaven and earth, and now that the rain has fallen and been transformed into kernels we call it something very similar to water!
Ni is the word for that, ni naa, is that what it.
Níí is the word for sour.
Nía is the word for clean.
Niaa is the word for my hand.
Be water my friend.
