Hand Painted Puerto Rico Sol de Jayuya





Petroglyphs are rock carvings or carved in stone. This particular petroglyph, Sol de Jayuya, is not found any other place in Puerto Rico only in Jayuya and so is of great archaeological value. 


Our petroglyphs were carved by the Taino Indians who inhabited Puerto Rico in pre-Columbian times (before 1493). Some believe that they are artistic symbols or writings or have a religious significance.


The other petroglyph is ... el Coqui Taino ... also very popular even as inspirations for tattoos. I hand painted the design in earthy colors of camel, bronze and chocolate on habotai silk.
Size: 11 x 60 inches * 27.94 x 152.4 cm
For more Petroglyph Hand Painted Scarves;

Each scarf is signed on the lower left-hand corner and Puerto Rico on the right side.
Each scarf is individually hand dyed and/or hand painted making it ... one of a kind ... due to the process used.
All the scarves are 100% Silk. All are hand washable.

Thank you for visiting.
