This whimsical piece is a bit unusual. Normally, Chimayo-sytle weavings are woven with commercial yarns and this is handspun churro so this has a very different kind of texture than other Chimayos. And the pictorial element in the Chimayo style is also pretty unusual, as is a house with wings. We found it comforting that no matter which way the piece hangs, there is always one house that is right side up. This piece has natural tan as a background color and natural black, gray and white, orange included in its design. It was woven by Lisa Trujillo who is a spinner and weaver with more than thirty years of weaving in the Chimayo and Rio Grande tradition, Lisa has won many awards at Spanish Market. It measures approximately 40 by 46 inches.
