SKU: 1900.68 Categories: ,

Ilaria Machacca Apaza hand spun alpaca fibers. She then dyed the yarns using all natural vegetable dyes – a difficult and time-consuming process. The symbols of sacred Chun’chu dancers in the center band, outer bands of Inti (sun, light), and wide bands of crop rows in between create a story of the Q’ero people’s intimate relation with Pachamama.  The components of this textile reflect the overall balance and harmony expressed in the Q’ero cosmovision of the world.  Use as a beautiful table runner or shawl or altar cloth. 19 inches  x 34 inches plus fringe at both ends. 48 x 87 cm plus fringe. Your purchase includes a photo of Ilaria holding your new textile.
