Tibetan Monks and the main alfombra in La Orotava 2006

This year, the town of La Orotava, in the north of Tenerife, held its traditional Corpus Christi celebration on the 22nd June. On this occasion and to conclude the commemoration of the 500th anniversary of Orotava's foundation, the town organised a Congreso Internacional de Alfombristas (International Congress of Tapestry Artists) with participants from other Spanish towns and representatives from Europe, Asia and America.

The congress, entitled “El arte efímero de las alfombras de flores y tierras en el mundo” (The ephemeral art of flowers and soil tapestries in the world), brought together artists from Muhlenbach (Germany), Brussels (Belgium), Genzano di Roma (Italy), Kobe (Japan), Huamantla (Mexico), Texas (U.S.A.) and representation from Tibet.
