Bright Inti and Saqas Tika Mestana


Out of stock

All aspects of a Q’ero textile are visual poetry expressing the Q’ero people’s strong connection to Pachamama, the Apus, and all beings. Four rows of sacred symbols Inti express the Q’ero people’s intimate relationship with the earth and with all aspects of the natural and spiritual world. The colorful woven symbols in the middle represent “saqas tika” — the furrows, fields and flowering plants — in beautiful balance.  The outer rows of Inti reflect the various positions of sun. This traditional style mesa reflects the sacred complementary duality as lived in the Andes of Peru.  Weaver Modesta Phacsi Ordonez of Quico Q’eros knelt on the ground, leaning over her loom, for many days to create this lovely textile.  26.5 x 26.5 inches.  61 x 61 cm.
