Palenque is the name of an ancient Mayan city-state in Mexico, where a famous tomb resides within the confines of a pyramid. This cotton wall hanging recreates the images and characters depicted on the surface of that tomb, portraying the great leader Pakal, surrounded by Mayan religious motifs. El Salvador's Rhina Rehmann designs the wall hanging, achieving the motifs using the batik method, where a wax resist is applied to the cotton fabric before submerging it in a vat of Prussian blue dye, with gold-colored accents added afterward by hand.
