Two panels of this textile feature four rows of double stylized symbols of Q’ero visual poetry. The sacred Chun’chu dancers (Inkarri) represent the coming return of the mythical Inkarri (Inka) to revive the native Andean people to their former glory. The diamond like symbols are the sacred Inti (the sun and inner light). The beautiful bands of black and deep maroon create a grounding effect. This traditional style mesa cloth reflects the sacred complementary duality of male/female as lived in the Andes of Peru. Created by Q’ero weaver Juliana Chura Phacsi of Kiku village in Q’eros.. 29 x 25.5 inches. 74 x 65 cm. Your purchase includes a photo of Juliana’s husband holding your new mesa cloth.
