A woman was leaning against a mud wall in Zinacantan. There were cracks all over the wall behind her. As I stared at the cracks, I felt that they represented the energy that the woman in this photo was releasing.

The woman wearing a beautifully embroidered traditional costume was leaning against the wall, embroidering. The embroidery must have been traditional because she was wearing an embroidered ethnic costume. Embroidery is an integral part of the folk costumes of this area. There were many people wearing embroidered ethnic costumes. The patterns seem to vary from region to region, though.
