It is used for carrying coca leaves, ceremonial objects, and khuyas which are wrapped in a carrying cloth. This chus’pa is from Gloria Samata Apasa of tiny Yanaruma village in the Hapu Q’eros Nation. 13 x 10 inches. 33 x 25 cm. Your purchase includes a photo of Gloria’s husband holding your new ceremonial chuspa.
