Vibrant symbols of a culture rich in art and mysticism, four diamonds appear in Zapotec cosmogony as the "eye of God." Each angle represents the cardinal points, the paths of life. The center leads to one's inner self. Mario Chavez recreates Zapotec artistry with virgin wool and natural dyes, creating a mesmerizing rug in shades of green, red and warm brown.

Thank you Mario Chavez for creating these wonderful rugs


Edinburgh,/Sotland/ UK

The rug and its beautiful vibrant colours brought memories of warmer times, when on my frequent Mexico trips, back to cold, dark and wet Scotland - making our winters more bearable. Excellent craftsmanship and also very resilient for daily use - not shredding fibres etc.


gracias Mario your rug "" Fiesta Oaxaquena"" makes my heart soar like an eagle every time I see it! It is truly a gift from Teotl-Tlan.""
