SLING WOMAN

Cary Wolinsky

Created 1985

Amantani Island, Peru. On this beautiful island in Lake Titicaca, spinning, weaving and knitting wool from sheep, alpaca, and llamas are everywhere! Teribio Juli Calsin, the owner of the guest house where I stayed and his wife Saturnin were weaving on a crude, horizontal treadle loom and on ground looms. Saturnin, wearing a heavy wool skirt, was eager to show me this traditional Huaraca Sling she had made.
