Mesa Cloth with Mirrored Half Inti Symbols


1 in stock

This traditional mesa cloth was woven of pure alpaca in the classic style with mirrored Inti symbols of sacred light and sun. The complex woven patterns reflect Q’ero life as strongly connected to the agricultural fields of Pachamama, the Apus, and all beings. The weaver knelt on the ground on her knees to lean over her loom for many days to produce this finely balanced square textile.  27.5 x 27.5 inches.  70 x 70 cm.
