Large Mesa of Chunchu / Inkarri


Out of stock

Martina Huaman Apasa created this strong mesa cloth with an overall balance of hue and tone that evoke peace and stability. The red hues are softer and deeper than in the photos. 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 mesa reflects the sacred complementary duality as lived in the Andes of Peru.  Martina wove this classic mesa kneeling on the ground outside her home in Hapu Grande village of Q’eros at 13,000 feet in elevation. Your purchase helps her family and her community build a more sustainable life and supports traditional Q’ero culture. Square at 28 x 28 inches. 71 x 71 cm.  Learn more about Martina Huaman Apasa in the sidebar.
