This section of a belt pattern, (above), could be used with different colors to represent things as diverse as flowers or clover, snowflakes or butterflies. The artist purchased this belt from a weaver in the village of San Pedro, Guatemala, on the beautiful Lake Attitlan. Surrounded by volcanoes, this lake is considered one of the most beautiful spots in the world by travelers. When Borofsky visited the village during the late Seventies and collected many of these belts, it was still a very little-known place.
