Nixiwaka Yawanawá Painting. Vana - The Spirit of our Shadows. Amazon Rainforest Spirit.

Painted by an Amazon Indian alongside artist John Dyer, this Nixiwaka Yawanawá original painting explores the rainforest spirit Vana who is the spirit of our shadows. The amazing power of this spirit can be seen in this remarkable painting. A boa constrictor forms the foreground of this tribal vision and energy radiates from Vana as she connects to the rainforest.

"The painting represents the very powerful Vana spirits. They are the guardian angels that protect us from bad things and as such are seen as the Spirit of our own shadow. Only the Shamans can see and talk to them in ceremonies which involve Ayahuasca, a sacred drink to the Yawanawá. The spirits guide the visions in the ceremonies so that they can find their personal Vana. My painting is the vision of my Aunt, a Shaman, which I originally drew from her description. It is therefore a unique, powerful & emotional image." Nixiwaka Yawanawá
