Four rows of sacred Inti symbols express the Q’ero people’s intimate relationship with the sun and light, and with all aspects of the natural and spiritual world. The K’anchay design represents the Inti Chakran, ir the sun’s filed (space) and sunlight (time). The deep wine reds in the outer fields contrast with the middle fields of black on the male and female sides of the mesa cloth. The beautiful colors of the Inti symbols are lovely and lively against the fields of black and wine red. This traditional style mesa cloth reflects the sacred complementary duality as lived in the Andes of Peru. Gregoria Sucle Apaza  wove this outside her home in the hamlet of Yanaruma 15,500 feet elevation. Your purchase helps her family and her community build a more sustainable life and supports traditional Q’ero culture.  22 x 23 inches. 56 x 58 cm.  Almost square. A photo of Gregoria [holding a different textile] is included with your purchase.
