This painting is made on burlap (textile piece made of hemp and jute) arranged on a wooden frame, leaving the threads unbound on the edges.

With an ethnic style, it reminds us of the life of ancient civilizations whose customs were perfectly respectful of nature. It is inspired by the textiles made in the ancient Peruvian civilization, specifically in the mantles of the Paracas Necropolis civilization. An ancient pre-Columbian civilization from ancient Peru that developed in the Paracas peninsula, Pisco province, Ica region, between 700 BC. C. and 200 d. C. And where a textile art considered one of the finest and most sophisticated in the world was made. Where mantles were made of a single piece and rectangular size that was worn on the head as a large mantilla that fell down the back, decorated with embroidery of polychrome motifs. When he died it was part of the clothing or funerary trousseau.

In this case, a character is represented holding a trophy head with naturalistic motifs of elements of flora and fauna.
