Stunning huipil full of deer! This huipil is from the town of Tactic in the region of Alta Verapaz. This lovely huipil measures 40” across the shoulders, and 17 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped and measures 4” along each of the four sides, with an additional 3” slit in the collar along the shoulder to allow more headroom.

This huipil is elegant with its deep bronze tones throughout the body. The weaving is accented with traditional deer and mayan stars in the bodice. The colors are copper, brown, burgundy, and turquoise with accents of white, pink, and green. The collar is trimmed with free-hand machine embroidery of large flowers in pink, purple, and yellow. The neckline sleeves are accented with blue velvet trim. There is much use of arti-seda thread in this huipil.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with a little sign of wear in the form of some loose threads in the center of the bodice.
