Four bands of symbols of sacred Chunchu 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.The wide outer bands and narrow middle bands are beautifully woven in subtle stripes of natural plant dyed soft gold and green-gold. The wide center bands are in a soft blue hue, which is an unusual and lovely color in a mesa cloth. All yarns are natural plant dyes and evenly woven, evoking a deep sense of peace and harmony. 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.  Dionicia Apaza Samata wove this kneeling on the ground outside her home in Q’eros at 13,000 feet in elevation.
