All-over sacred symbols of Inti (sun, light) with hand-embroidered and hand-beaded accents. This alter cloth has some heft to it due to all the beads. Bound with woven green binding all around to set off the patterns of color. Woven in the village of Yanaruma in the Hapu Q'ero Nation. Unusual that this is almost a true square. 20 L x 19 W inches (51 x 48.5 cm).
