Gloria Samata Apaza created this handsome runner that features symbols of sacred llamas and Chunchu dancers down the middle. More abstract Chunchu figures are in the rows to the sides. The colors are all the natural colors of alpaca fibers, giving this piece of art a timeless appeal.

The rows between represent the crops and interdependence of humans with the Apus and all beings as the sacred cosmovision of the Q’ero people of balance and harmony.

Gloria lives in the tiny village of Yanaruma with no roads, no electricty, and no plumbing. Your purchase helps improve food security and education through partnership projects with the local community.  Visit Heart Walk Foundation to learn more.
