Limited Edition Print by artist John Dyer. The Creation of Ayahuasca in the Amazon Rainforest.

Available options: Small Unframed

This John Dyer limited edition fine art rainforest print tells the story of how the first shaman of the Yawanawá tribe of the Amazon rainforest created the sacred drink Ayahuasca to allow the tribe to cross over to the spirit world.

John Dyer's spirit of the rainforest project is a world first and John painted alongside an Amazon Indian creating this piece of art. The Ayahuasca vine grows throughout this image which has a very spiritual meaning and creates a rich visual surface.

"My painting that features on this limited print captures so much about the Rainforest that I know and understand, but in the context of one of the most fundamental and historic stories of the Yawanawá tribe. The Shaman is buried in the rainforest and from his energy new life emerges, in the form of medicinal plants. These plants allow the tribe to reconnect to the Shaman and this story of the cycle of energy underpins the cycle of life, death and rebirth. It is in so many ways a painting of balance and I have featured the Yawanawá tribe at the center of my painting as they rejoice in this energy that comes from the rainforest. Tribes all over the Amazon know of Ayahuasca and have a shared knowledge of this even though this knowledge is not from direct contact with each other. The knowledge comes through the spirits." John Dyer
