The tapete (rug) design, Zapotec Diamond, is a theme repeated in nature and adapted by Zapotecs for their rug designs and on the carved stones of temples at the archeological sites of Monte Alban, Mitla, Dainzu and Yagul. You see zigzags of mountains, lightning and stars in the heavens. This tapete incorporates natural dyed wool from indigo, moss, and cochineal.© Norma Hawthorne 2008
