Details

Symbolizing the stairway to the heavens, the chakana cross is a geometric symbol that evokes the Andean cosmovision. Peruvian artist David Laura Zanabria creates this stunningly mystical tapestry, which depicts a condor bird with the body of a chakana that soars beneath the rays of the sun. Zanabria works on a traditional loom to hand-weave this tapestry from an alpaca blend. This piece is named Apu Kuntur in Quechua. Apu means "God" or mountain, and also refers to the Apu mountain spirits. Kuntur is the Quechua word for "condor."

"Gorgeous!"

This wall tapestry is such a quality piece that I hate to have to return it. Unfortunately, the colors are much more vibrant than I anticipated and just wont work in the room it was intended for. I will continue to explore other items made by this artisan.

"A truly magnificent piece!"

The tapestry just arrived and, although I originally planned to incorporate it as a wall hanging, I have placed it under my dining table which has a glass top and is surrounded by six black leather chairs - it is truly magnificent and I have already had compliments!
