Casa de Paja, a straw farm house painting in Chile by Clina Polloni.
In the early years of Chile, even in the 1800’s, farmers planted their wheat in the fields. This was one of their most important source of food. They baked their bread in an open fire, prepared mote con huesillos and other culinary dishes. And when the harvest was all over, they built their thatched houses with straw.
I did this painting from a sketch that my great grandfather, Antonio Polloni did when traveling and painting the country side of Chile in the 1800’s.
