Caption:

The crimson headband and bright colors of this woman's huipil offset her weathered features. Her skin makes her appear old beyond her years; she may be no more than 50. The quality of her weaving is extraordinary. The large geometric patterns and a color scheme saturated with blues and greens is unique to San Pedro Necta.
