Earth-Honoring Inkarri Mesa / Misa / Llikya


Out of stock

Soft earth hues evoke tranquility and harmony in this mestana featuring the Chunchu dancers (Inkarri). Natural fiber colors in shades of grey complement the gentle tones of the 4 bands of sacred symbols of Inkarri.  The 2 wide bands are in a subtle olive green and represent the agricultural fields. Four rows of sacred Chunchu symbols express the Q’ero people’s belief in the coming return of Inkarri (great Inka leader) and the resurgence of the greatness of the descendants of the Inka people.  All aspects of the textile are a visual poetry that reflect the Q’ero people’s interdependent relationship of AYNI with Pachamama.   29 x 24.5 inches.  74 x 62 cm.
