This unusual and dynamic mesa cloth uses deep green hues to frame the bold Inkarri / Chunchu figures. Four bands of symbols of sacred Chunchu symbols express the traditional Q’ero myth of the coming return of Inkarri (great Inka leader) and the resurgence of the greatness of the descendants of the Inka people. Woven on a loom set into the dirt by a highly skilled Q’ero woman who demonstrates her skills by weaving the challenging subtle stripes in the dark green outer bands. Your purchase helps the weaver, her family, and her community build a more sustainable life and supports traditional Q’ero culture. 25 x 31 inches. 63.5 x 79 cm. Your purchase includes a photo of the weaver holding your new mesa cloth.
