Alpaca Inti Llikya / Mesa Cloth


Out of stock

Brigida Suclle Phacsi created this lovely mesa cloth / llikya in a classic style with wide bands of natural tan alpaca fiber. Every aspect of the textile reflects an integral component of life in Q’eros and the relationship of the Q’ero people with the entire universe — a harmonious relationship of Ayni of mutual interdependence, connections, and reciprocity. The strong patterns of Inti (sacred Light and Sun) reflect Q’ero life as strongly connected to the agricultural fields of Pachamama, the Apus, and all beings. This textile features four bands of Inti, the sun and spiritual light.  Brigida knelt on the ground to lean over her loom over many weeks to produce this beautiful textile.  It has a soft “hand” and will fold nicely.  28.5 x 25.5 inches.  72.5 x 65 cm.  Your purchase includes a photo of the weaver’s husband holding your new mesa cloth.
