This stunning mesa by Melania Apaza Machacca holds the essence of Pachamama in its colors, symbols, and harmony. Towo rows of finely woven Inti symbols (sacred Sun and Light) represent the Q’ero people’s interdependency on Pachamama and all of the universe.  Two outer rows feature symbols of the Chunchu dancers that tell the story of Inkarri, the Great Inka who will return to restore the greatness of the Andean people. The two panel textile is a traditional style that reflects the sacred complementary duality of male/female as lived in the Andes of Peru. This mestana has a soft hand and folds nicely.  Your purchase helps Melania, her family, and her community build a more sustainable life and supports traditional Q’ero culture. 24.5  x 28  inches. 20 x 71 cm.
