Tanya Aguiñiga's Chiapas stools
The idea for Tanya Aguiñiga's abstracted animals came from the artist's residency in Chiapas, Mexico, where Mayan women taught her how to make textiles using giant "backstrap" looms affixed to poles or trees. The Mayan artisans' tiny animal figurines inspired Aguiñiga to create her giant creatures as an hommage.
