Every aspect of a Q’ero textile is a form of woven poetry and reflects the Q’ero people’s intimate relationship with the earth and with all aspects of the natural and spiritual world. IN this mesa/misa, the colorful woven symbols represent “Tawa Inti Qocha” — the sun at midnight.  The mesa contains the four parts of daily time —  sunrise, noon, sunset, and midnight — in beautiful balance. This traditional two panel style mesa/llikya reflects the sacred complementary duality as lived in the Andes of Peru.  Simona Samata Champi of Kiku (Quico) created this tightly woven mesa cloth under the watchful gaze of Apu Mama Rosa. Your purchase helps the Q’ero Nation build a more sustainable life and supports traditional Q’ero culture.  27 x 25 inches.  69 x 64 cm.  Your purchase includes a photo of Simona holding your new mesa cloth.
