'El hombre' 1962. 127 x 85 cm. Violeta Parra

Violeta Parra: más que música!! (Arpilleras).

Chilenas Rock! Chilean women whose husbands/sons disappeared in the Pinochet regime made brightly colored wall hangings called arpilleras, which contain intricate scenes made of rags embroidered on burlap. Many contain images, photographs, and the names of their missing family members. They were often passed throughout communities in hopes of locating relatives. They also smiggled them out of the country to sell and help support these women.
