Sakas Tika and Half-Intis Mesa


Out of stock

This unusual mesa has an added Sakas Tika panel down the middle, connecting the two panels that represent the male-female complimentary duality of Q’ero culture. The colorful woven symbols down the middle panel represent “saqas tika” — the furrows, fields and flowering plants — in beautiful balance.  Four rows of sacred symbols express the Q’ero people’s intimate relationship with the earth and with all aspects of the natural and spiritual world. This traditional style mesa reflects the sacred complementary duality as lived in the Andes of Peru.  The sacred symbols are a visual poetry expressing the Q’ero people’s strong connection to Pachamama, the Apus, and all beings.   28.5 x 24 inches.  72 x 61 cm.
