Serape by Agueda S. Martinez

This serape was woven by my Grandmother,
Agueda Martinez when she was ninety-five years old. When I visited her in the spring of 1993, she has just completed the serape which was highlighted using pretty spring colors of pink, turquios blue, and bright yellow.

Grandmother wove many other serapes and jergas in her lifetime some of which were awarded blue ribbons and others that were purchased by museums including the Smithsonian.
