This traditional mesa cloth was woven in the classic style with distinctive Inti symbols of sacred light and sun — Inti. The woven patterns of sunrise, sunset, and the sun at midday –as well as the wide bands of growing fields —  reflect Q’ero life as strongly connected to the agricultural fields of Pachamama, the Apus, and all beings. Weaver Maruja Apasa Samata of Ccochamrka village knelt on the ground, leaning over her loom for many days to produce this finely balanced classic textile.  Colors are softer and more muted than in the photos.   31 x 26.5 inches.  79 x 67 cm.   Your purchase includes a photo of Maruja holding your new mesa cloth.
