The Mayu symbol design represents the fertile fields, so essential to Q’ero survival in the highlands, where life is intricately interwoven with the elements of the world of nature and spirit. Multiple parallel lines create an interesting effect the longer you look at it. Artist Maria Apaza Huilca of Hapu Q’eros created this tightly woven textile in the traditional manner — on her knees on the ground under powerful Apus of mountains and river.  29 x 24 inches.  73 x 61 cm.  A photo of Maria’s husband holding your textile is included with your purchase.
