This deep-hearted mestana has rich but muted hues that are not fully expressed by the photos. Q’ero weaver Maitusa Gerillo Quispe of the Kiku community in Q’eros created this calm textile. The four rows of Inti symbols (sacred light/sun) are somewhat raised by the use of thicker yarns, adding a sense of movement and dimension to the overall textile. The Inti symbols in this mestana represent the sun at noon and midnight,and reflect the Q’ero people’s intimate relationship with nature. The two panels express the complementary duality of male and female sides on the mesa cloth. Your purchase helps the weaver, her family, and her community build a more sustainable life and supports traditional Q’ero culture. 24.5 x 30 inches. 60 x 71 cm.
