The mirrored symbols of the Inkarri represent the legend of the beheading of Inkarri (chunchu) who is believed to be returning to restore the grandeur of the Q’ero people. The colors of the Inkarri images were created using natural vegetal dyes with soft muted shades. Four rows of the double Inkarri are framed by fields of black and red. Weaver Angelica Apaza Samata created this mesa cloth at her home in Q’eros at 13,000 feet in elevation under powerful Apus of mountains and river.  26.5 x 31 inches.  67 x 77.5 cm.
