This mesa cloth was woven in the classic style with distinctive rows of the sacred Inkarri represented by Chunchu figures.  Four rows of sacred Chunchu symbols express the Q’ero people’s belief in the coming return of Inkarri (great Inka leader) and the resurgence of the greatness of the descendants of the Inka people. This precisely woven textile evokes strength and confidence in a world coming into harmony and balance.  Young weaver Yesica Apasa Samata of Ccochamrka, Q’eros, demonstrates her advanced skill with even and precise stitches. She knelt over her loom on the ground to produce this finely balanced classic textile.   26.5 x 28 inches.  67 x 71 cm.  Your purchase includes a photo of Yesica holding your new mesa cloth.  NOTE:  Colors are more soft and subdued than appear in the photos.
