Out of stock

The mirrored symbols of the Inkarri represent the legend of the beheading of Inkarri (chunchu) who is believed to be returning to restore the grandeur of the Q’ero people. Four rows of the double Inkarri are framed by fields of black and deep burgundy. Q’ero weaver Vilma Samata Apasa created this mesa cloth at her home in Q’eros at 13,000 feet in elevation under powerful Apus of mountains and river.  28 x 21 inches.  71 x 54 cm.  Your new mesa will fold nicely to hold your inner cloth and khuyas.  Your purchase includes a photo of Vilma holding your new textile. She is smiling her gratitude for your help.
