Do you know what 'arpilleras' are? They are pieces of appliquéd textile folk art, common in South America. Doll characters and animals create a three-dimensional effect representing scenes from daily life. Arpilleras became a symbol of protest for mothers, sisters, and daughters of Chilean desaparecidos, as well as a source of income, during the dictatorship of General Pinochet.
