Amazing use of popotillo (small cut straw)!  Image shows a young couple courting near the lavadero (wash basin).  Exquisite craftsmanship. In excellent vintage condition.  Frame is new.  See photos.   Popote art typically involves dyeing the straw, cutting it to size and then adhering it to a board with beeswax.
