moreThis is a beautiful amate (bark) painting in vibrant and even neon hues. These pieces bring a natural and eclectic element to your interiors. Amate folk paintings are done by the Otomi Indians; they have wonderful designs of animals in sometimes vibrant colors. This art is matted against a grass cloth matting and framed with a natural wood frame.
More about the art: Bark paper, or papel amate, is produced by hand in the state of Puebla by Otomi Indians using bark from the mulberry or fig trees. The mulberry tree creates off-white paper, while the fig tree creates much darker paper. The bark is washed, boiled, and laid in lines on a wooden board. The fibers are then beaten with a stone until they fuse together.
The paper finds its way to the Nahua Indians of southern Mexico who have excelled for several generations at painting bright village and wildlife scenes on the hand-made paper. In addition, we now are proud to offer classic Mayan design bark paintings that depict important deities and glyphs in Mayan culture less
