Inspired by the pre-Hispanic world view known as 'cosmovision,' Peruvian artisan Inka designs this impressive tapestry. Handwoven of alpaca blend yarns, the chakana, or Inca cross indicates the cardinal directions, as well as the 'three levels of existence.' The cross is surrounded by abstract, colorful forms that suggest people and animals.
