Caption:

Tired after a long morning of shopping in the market with her grandmother, a young girl rests in the shade. Her red huipil is one of the two typical designs from Petzal. The other variation is worn by her grandmother next to her. The entire huipil, including the geometric designs, is woven, an extraordinary amount of work.
