I am cleaning out my studio and originally thought about donating my Huichol yarn painting to a thrift. We had it wrapped up since we moved due to the damage. Now we have it out, we want to try to see if there is anyone who can repair it. We bought it in Mexico in the 70s. It was made by an inmate at a prison, in Guadalajara
The damage is in the lower left and at various spots throughout. The wall where it was displayed at our home in Sugar Land was west facing and we think the sun melted the wax. If you are not familiar with this kind of art it is made by the Huichol who use wax to adhere the fabric to the wood backing. The figures are mystical images that appear in a religious ceremony when they take peyote.
it really is fantastic and has not lost any of the color.
here is a close up of tha damage spot and it shows a little of how it is made.
There are a few men who make them in Santa Fe. maybe we better plan a trip there.
