Vivid flowers in a variety of colors bloom on a background of vibrant fuchsia. Maria Uyauri depicts them in a festive design for a Peruvian holiday where December weather is warm and summery. She works in arpillería – appliqués of fabric cutouts, embroidered by hand – to create an heirloom Christmas stocking. A polyester lining keeps the shape, and the reverse side is solid fuchsia.
