This charming textile is woven in the classic style with distinctive rows of the sacred Inkarri and double Inti symbols. The outer bands in a deep red, and the black inner bands represent agricultural fields. Two rows of large and detailed Chunchu symbols express the Q’ero people’s belief in the coming return of Inkarri (great Inka leader) and the resurgence of the greatness of the descendants of the Inka people. Santusa Apaza Samata knelt over her loom on the ground in her community of Hapu to produce this balanced classic textile. 25 x 31 inches. 63.5 x 78.7 cm.
