Discovering color in Guatemala

Meet pure Guatemalan RED,as seen in the Solola market. Delicious and if washed carefully can provide many wonderful meals. Is this the inspiration for the red used in the woven textiles of "G"?

Then comes the deep BLUE of a distant volcano, woven into a weaving in Santa Cruz on Lake Atitlan.

Followed by the YELLOW of the Iglesia La Merced. (The Iglesia La Merced is in Antigua and construction was begun in 1548 followed by reconstruction after the 1976 earthquake.) Now you have seen how the three primary colors can be found in Guatemala.
