De Amaral’s artwork is influenced by the landscapes of her native Colombia. This work is part of a series she called Riscos, which is Spanish for “cliffs.” De Amaral made it by weaving together wool and horsehair—that’s right, horsehair! The lines she created were inspired by quipu, a system of knotted colored cords used to record information by the ancient Inca civilization in South America. What comes to mind when you look at the artwork?
