• Jesus happened to be working on replicating one of Escher’s designs when we visited. The weavers of Teotitlan del Valle are famous for their reproductions of modern art, and it all started when the celebrated Oaxacan painter Rufino Tamayo came to Jesus’ grandfather and asked if he could weave one of his paintings. In the years to come, the weavers of Teotitlán del Valle would go on to discover the likes of Picasso, Matisse, and Dalí, giving the paintings new life on their looms.
