This distinguished mestana has rich contrasting hues of burgundy and black. The Q’ero weaver created this exquisite textile in her village in Hapu. The inner rows of Inti symbols (sacred light/sun) represent the sun at noon and midnight and reflect the Q’ero people’s intimate relationship with nature. The outer rows depict a double chunchu / inkarri symbol. 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. 30 x 27 inches. 76 x 68.5 cm.
