This intricate embroidery is handmade by the indigenous Otomí people of Tenango de Doria in central Mexico. The symbolism and iconography in this textile design reflect time-honored traditions and beliefs of harmony with nature. The whimsical flora and fauna embroidered motifs can be traced back to pre-Aztec Mesoamerica and are said to originate from cave paintings. Each character bears significance. For example, the deer is said to carry wealth; the rooster, to announce a good harvest. Therefore, this piece offers not only its homage to the Otomí heritage, but also the notion of luck and prosperity.
