The legend of Inkarri is represented by the chunchu figures, which are celebrated at all Q’ero festivals by the chunchu dances. The Andean people anticipate the return of the Inkarri, great ruler, to restore the glory of the Inka people. All fibers are the natural colors of alpaca: browns charcoal, tan, cream, and gray. Weaver Maria Apaza Huillca hand spun the alpaca fibers into yarns and wove this lovely mesa cloth outside her home under the gaze of the apus in her Q’ero village.  She added a handsome woven binding around all the edges. 33 x 24 inches.  84 x 61 cm.
