Original Painting by John Dyer. Nawê. Painting inspired by the Yawanawá Tribe. Amazon Rainforest.

An amazing painting showing the visions of an Amazon Indian during the snuff taking ceremony of the Yawanawá tribe of the Amazon rainforest. John Dyer's painting shows the boa constrictor merging with the jaguar and then releasing their energy as a powerful shaman. The Yawanawá tribe can be seen in the middle of the canvas. Tropical plants, sacred flowers and butterflies surround the tribe.

"This painting 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 centre 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 grows throughout the painting. For me this is a very powerful image of the Spirit of the Rainforest." John Dyer
