    Description:

    This Peruvian arpillera is divided into three distinct periods of time. The top section 'yesterday' shows women inside their homes, happy as their children enjoy drinking milk. It depicts content family life. The next picture 'today' shows women out in the streets walking to the Council buildings. The children are not in the picture. The women have gone in pairs marching and carrying three different banners: "Solution", "We want milk for our children", "That we never are out of it". They show a peaceful attitude by flying embroidered white doves above their march. The third section reads 'Always' and shows the women walking with glasses of milk which they are bringing home to their children.
