Photographer's Note

A portrait of a beautiful, young Mayan woman weaving a carpet in the backyard of her home in a village in the heart of Chiapas.

I enjoyed the tranquility of the moment while the woman was very concentrated on her work, although with a somehow sad look on her face, as if almost her serene movements worked like a therapy.

Her baby boy was sleeping like an angel on her back, comfortably close to his mother’s warmth, totally unaware of the worries on her mind; he must have felt asleep on the waves of a weaving lullaby.
