This soft and charming textile is woven in the classic style with distinctive rows of the sacred Inkarri represented by Chunchu figures. The outer bands are in a deep red, and the black inner bands represent agricultural fields. Four 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. All aspects of the textile reflect the Q’ero people’s interdependent relationship of AYNI with Pachamama. The weaver knelt over her loom on the ground in her community of Hapu to produce this balanced classic textile. 26.5 x 32.5 inches. 67.3 x 82.6 cm.
