A classic style mesa cloth woven with distinctive Inti symbols of sacred light and sun. The woven patterns show the sun at sunrise, sunset, midday, and midnight. All aspects of every weaving express Q’ero life as strongly connected to the agricultural fields of Pachamama, the Apus, and all beings. Weaver Laura Samata Gerillo knelt on the ground, leaning over her loom for many days to produce this finely balanced classic textile outside her stone one-room home in Ccochamarka village, Q’eros. Colors are softer and more muted than in the photos. 33 x 23 inches. 84 x 59 cm.
