Classic llikya or mesa cloth with two rows of sacred Ch’unchus (Inkarri) and two rows of sacred Intis (light).   The sacred Chunchu represents the coming return of Inkarri when the traditional descendants of the Inka people will rise again in the fullness of their beautiful culture. Damiana Apaza Samata wove this textile in the traditional way, on her knees outside her home in Hapu Grande. The process takes several months.
29 x 23 inches. 74 x 60 cm.  Your purchase includes a photo of Damiana holding a different textile. You can meet Damiana in her home sitting with her husband and they ask for help to sell their weavings in this short film:   Q’ero Life in the Andes: A Partnership.
