Eva Pacsi Gerillo wove this excellent mestana outdoors, on her knees on the ground, in front of her home in the tiny hamlet of Quico.  Four rows of bold sacred Init sysmbols represent the sun and inner light. Stunning colors of blue, red, green and pink evoke confidence in a world coming into harmony and balance.  Q’ero mesa cloths are woven in two panels to reflect the sacred complementary duality of male and female as lived in the Andes of Peru.  Your purchase helps Manuela, her family, and her community build a more sustainable life and supports traditional Q’ero culture.  25 x 28.5 inches. 64 x 72 cm.  Your purchase includes a photo Eva holding your new mestana.
