The latest exhibition at the Museo Textil de Oaxaca features traditional textiles from the Chichicastenango region of Guatemala, where weaving has been an artform since before the Spanish conquest. This Ki-che Maya region has produced some of the most spectacular handwork of anywhere in the world. Despite centuries of oppression, poverty, and near extermination (having put up a valiant resistance to the conquerors), the culture has survived and along with it the designs that represent indigenous symbology.
