Bacaal Nga'à: blue dreams

Size: 9x12ft

Weaver: Faustino Lazo Bautista

Materials and methods: criollo sheep wool hand dyed with Xiuhquilitl (indigo) in different shades and hues. Handwoven on a Zapotec style loom of the 16th century adapted from European styles. Woven using a 7 threads per inch reed and wool rayon blend for warp. 


These shades of blue represent all these streams of water that are reuniting and coming together from all the four corners, each stream is bringing its own hue, texture, saturation, contamination, trauma, nutrient, lack of nutrient...etc but in the union of them all there is the immensity and calmness of the big Oceans that we call Niisdou, which literally means the calm and immense waters.
