Four bands of symbols of sacred Chunchu express the Q’ero people’s belief in the coming return of Inkarri and the resurgence of the greatness of the descendants of the Inka people.The wide outer bands and middle narrow bands are in the classic red color, in contrast with the solid black fields on the male and female sides of the mesa cloth. This traditional style mesa cloth reflects the sacred complementary duality as lived in the Andes of Peru.  Colors are more subtle than may appear in the photos.  Damiana Apaza Samata wove this outside her home in Q’eros at 13,000 feet in elevation.
