The beautiful woven symbols in this stunning mesa represent “saqas tika” — the furrows, fields and flowering plants — in beautiful balance. The entire textile is visual poetry that expresses the Q’ero people’s intimate relationship with the earth and with all aspects of the natural and spiritual world and strong connection to Pachamama, the Apus, and all beings. The black and deep burgundy bands contrast nicely with the deep rose threads and represent the uncultivated fields of the pampa. The weaver created this handsome mesa in her home in Q’eros under the watchful gaze of sacred Apu Mama Rosa. 28 x 32 inches. 71 x 81 cm. NOTE: the colors are deeper and softer than appear in the photos.
