Details

The rayed diamond pattern of the Q'ero represents Inti, the sun. This design is seen woven into the oldest surviving hand-woven shawls. An inti motif divided vertically (half inti) may be named inti chusa, for its resemblance to the sun as it goes behind a mountain. An inti motif so divided also evokes sun and shadow. The Q'ero rising sun is always woven with light colors, and the setting sun with dark colors. Handwoven by the Q'ero people of Peru.
