A decorative piece of cloth is hung across an arch or doorway. Fringe has been tied along a rope that hangs just below the cloth. The cloth has two parts to it and a hole in the shape of an almond eye in the middle. On the upper section of the cloth there is a beautifully beaded angel, bird, and donkey. A square of sunshine highlights the bird. In the bottom section there is a beaded cow and flower. It is powerful photograph that strongly captures a cultural element of a votive offering in Mexico City.
