Details

An astral symbol, the chakana symbolizes order in family and community life; it is taken from a constellation of stars that forms a square. The name means 'ladder to the sky' and the sacred Andean symbol is a manifestation of the union of mankind with the cosmos. The four points represent the four dimensions necessary for life in a spiritual, social, political and economic community.

The geometric motif glows in the middle of this colorful handloomed tapestry. Working in an alpaca blend, master artisan David Laura Zanabria pays tribute to Andean traditions, selecting both the techniques and colors favored by ancient peoples there.

Titled "Chakana" in Quechua.
