This traditional mesa cloth was woven in the classic style with distinctive double rows of teh sacred Inkarri represented by Chunchu figures. Four bands 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. The weaving evokes strength and confidence in a world coming into harmony and balance. The wide outer bands and narrow center band are beautifully woven in soft, dark burgundy hues and black. Weaver Florencia Machacca Suclli of Kiku, Q’eros, knelt on the ground, leaning over her loom, for many days to produce this finely balanced classic textile. 25 x 30 inches. 64 x 76 cm. Your purchase includes a photo of Florencia holding your new mesa cloth. NOTE: Colors are more soft and subdued than appear in the photos.
