Calla Lily Yarnbomb

Inspired by Diego Rivera’s The Flower Seller. The calla lily is a sensual, sculptural flower, very Mexican. The East Harlem demographic is 51% hispanic including an increasing number of Mexicans.

Rivera painted calla’s many times, particularly in frescoes depicted peasants carrying bundles or offerings of them.

This one is for my husband, his love affair with Mexico is ongoing and shows through our wall tapestries, crockery and now the neighborhood in which we live. This yarnbomb is located on the corner of E111th & Lexington, directly opposite the newly named Young Lords Way.
