Limited Edition Print by artist John Dyer. Nawê - Spirits of the Amazon Rainforest.

Available options: Small Unframed

An amazing image was captured by John Dyer during his residency painting with an Amazon Indian at the Eden Project. Tropical plants & flowers create a circular composition with a boa constrictor and jaguar merging their energy to create the spirit shaman. Through this unique image, we see the Yawanawá tribe of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest celebrating. Butterflies and Ayahuasca flowers surround the image.

"My Amazon rainforest painting that is featured on this signed limited edition print captures a vision that Nixiwaka Yawanawá had during a tribal ceremony in the Amazon. Nixiwaka described to me how the two most powerful animals of the rainforest appeared, the Boa Constrictor and the Jaguar. These two spirit animals then merged into one animal that was the combination of both spirits. This then transformed into a tribal spirit that connected and exploded its energy to every part of the rainforest. By using a circular composition and by interconnecting the bold shapes and colours of the plants I hope I have created an energetic and vibrant rainforest image that pulls your focus towards the center through the snake and Jaguar to the tribal ceremony that is taking place. The Amazon river flows in the background and the vine used in Ayahuasca ceremonies grows throughout the painting. For me this is a very powerful image of the Spirit of the Amazon Rainforest." John Dyer
