Vilma Samata Apasa created this small Inti mesa cloth in the classic style with distinctive Inti symbols of sacred sunrise and sunset –as well as the wide bands of growing fields in black and deep maroon. All aspects of every textile reflect Q’ero life as strongly connected to the agricultural fields of Pachamama, the Apus, and all beings. Vilma knelt on the ground in front of her home in Kiku (Quico) village, leaning over her loom for many days to produce classic textile. 20.75 x 24.5 inches. 53 x 62 cm. You can use your new llikya as a traveling mesa cloth or alter cloth.
