Mayan Portrait Sculptures | 1' W x 4' L | (one panel) Art Galleries in Door County | SOLD | Commissioned Art Work Available
This Art Gallery Located in Door County, Wisconsin offers bohemian wall tapestries and other pieces perfect for exclusive gifts, memorial pieces, and more.
The fine art of fiber wall sculptures & tapestries by Wendy Carpenter are handwoven in an impressionist art style through personal borderline abstract-literal interpretations. Carpenter's fiber art wall hangings capture the emotion and power of nature by abstracting the natural world.
I work with the Mayan Women of Guatemala through a mission project entitled “Creating Revenue through the Arts" teaching them how to design and sew with their hand-weaved Jaspe's fabric. My fair trade project provides a specialized skill and a higher standard of living for the women, their families, and the indigenous community as a whole.
My “Mayan Portrait” sculptures are handwoven with strips of fabric handwoven by Mayan weavers of Guatemala. The stuffed tube is handwoven and stitched together off-loom creating a feminine form. I used traditional Mayan colors and embellished them to give an appearance of long hair and a small female statue. The sculptures represent my respect for the indigenous lifestyle of women and their ability to preserve their historical traditions.
