Rina Quispe Huillca created this soft, lovely mesa cloth in striking hues to frame the four bands of sacred symbols of the Andes. The four bands of symbols represent Inti, the sacred sun and inner light. The symbols evoke a world coming into harmony and balance. The wide soft black bands and wine-colored bands represent agricultural fields. The two-panel mesa cloth reflects the sacred complementary duality of male/female as lived in the Andes of Peru.
