Red Lion Huipil Collage

This is about 8 1/2" X 8 1/2" with about a 1" border. It is made from pieces of used huipiles I cut and hand-sewed onto fleece. The lion is cut from a huipil from Nahuala and reminds me of a Chinese dragon.

 

A huipil is the traditional blouse worn by Guatemalan women and is sometimes spelled guipil.
