Thematic, Mythical Stories Told Through Textiles & Wall Tapestries

The cornerstone of any art is the inspiration, and Maximo Laura uses both his lived experience and cultural heritage to begin his creations. Throughout the history of South America, and the Andean region particularly, ancestral tales, myths and memories can be found in the art from different ages.

The stories and rituals that are depicted in the Peruvian weavings of Maximo Laura make his wall tapestries culturally important as well as beautiful, with layers of story behind each image. Whether it is the importance of duality in the balance of nature or the representation of the Sun God Inti, each tapestry is so much more than just the Andean imagery you might be interested in.

In Mr. Laura’s work, you might see a soaring Condor, the symbol of the realm of celestial beings. You might see geometric shapes and patterns representing the mountainous landscape, or Mother Moon as a silver disk. Each symbol, and every color, has a deeper meaning – not only to the story being told in the weaving but also in the cultural heritage of the Andean peoples.

How Are Wall Tapestries Created?

When you buy a wall tapestry by Maximo Laura, you should know that it’s a unique piece of art. It takes time and effort to create the perfect masterpiece.

  1. Design – All of the tapestries start as a drawing on a piece of paper based on themes such as musicians, animals, landscapes, and mythology. The design can take months to get right before it’s ready to be turned into a tapestry.
  2. Painting – Once the design is ready, Maximo Laura colors the designs, whether it’s with colored pencils or computer-aided.
  3. Color interpretation – Now the colors are chosen, it’s time to create them. This is done by mixing different colored yarns together. This is what makes this work so unique – it’s hard to find solid colors in any of his tapestries.
  4. Template – The design is recreated to scale. It’s transferred to the loom and serves as a guide for the weaver to ensure maximum quality.
  5. Weaving – All Maximo Laura wall hanging tapestries are hand woven by specific weavers. Each weaver has their own way of working, so there will only be one person working on each tapestry. The finished piece can take weeks or even months to complete, depending on the size and difficulty.
  6. Cleaning and stretching – This makes sure that the wall tapestry is at its best when it’s shipped to you. Each piece will have a Certificate of Authenticity stitched onto the back.

Why Choose A Maximo Laura Wall Tapestry

A Maximo Laura piece is something you will be proud to own. It can be a great conversation starter and a chance to show you’re sophisticated and well-traveled. Not only does it show your taste, but it will also improve any room it’s hung in. It allows you to contribute to the preservation and enrichment of a culture, as the wall tapestries embody and represent traditional Andean designs, stories, myths and symbols.

Traditional tapestries tend to be flat and woven using solid colors, but Maximo Laura changed the rules. His pieces are woven with textures that are 3D and created by blending yarn to create the perfect colors. This is what makes his tapestry art so special and enriching. You don’t just see his art; you can feel it. From afar, it can look like a painting, but up close, you can see the blended colors and the creativity that has gone into the work.

The Maximo Laura Wall Tapestry Process

Each hand woven tapestry starts with a small drawing. From these humble beginnings to a completed tapestry can take months, depending on size and complexity. Quite often, the inspiration follows a theme, whether musicians or the glorious ocean creatures around his home. The small drawing is colorized and matched to threads in the Color Laboratory, where hand-selected solid colored threads are put together to create a ‘butterfly’ of yarn that becomes the bright, vibrant colors of the finished weaving. Using this drawing as a guide, the weaving begins – choosing the right textures, techniques and colors to make a final product that is intricately detailed.
