This traditional mesa cloth was woven with four double rows pf Ichu Inti — the sacred light. The weaving expresses the Q’ero people’s reciprocal relationship of AYNI with all elements of the universe. The wide black bands and deep maroon bands represent the uncultivated fields. Weaver Alicia Gerillo Smata of Kiku, Q’eros, knelt on the ground, leaning over her loom, for many days to produce this classic textile.   29 x24.50 inches.  74 x 62 cm.  Your purchase includes a photo of Alicia holding your new mesa cloth.
