Novia (Bride) - Pinotepa de Don Luis: Oaxaca, Mexico
This young bride is “from the town of Pinotepa de Don Luis, “a town and municipality in the Jamiltepec District, west of the Costa Region of Oaxaca, Mexico.”
The bride wears a huipil of Pinotepa de Don Luis - very simple with little embroidery - ” one of her arms in the arm openings of the huipil. The other arm is inside the garment. This is the way that huipiles were worn for weddings. If the woman is buried in her wedding huipil, both arms will be placed through the armholes.”
“The photo of the young Mixtec bride was published in Volume One of The Ephemeral and the Eternal of Mexican Folk Art (1971). The photographer is identified as Irmgard W. Johnson.”
