A favorite textile that I was introduced to by these indigenous people were the Jalq'a aqsu design textile. The Jalq'a are an Andean indigenous society that make a unique textile in a red and black design. The textiles usually depict khurus, invincible savage beasts, of various shapes and sizes, that are woven of wool and alpaca in red onto a black background . Legend describes this as the dominion of an underworld deity known as the Saxra.
I was able to purchase a small vertical piece that is now hanging in our home.
Now back in the US, I have used my artistic license to combine several photos to create this painting showing the man and the beautiful items he has for sale.
