Nixiwaka Yawanawá Painting. Yuxi Yuve - The Water Spirit of the Amazon Rainforest

This painting by Amazon Indian artist Nixiwaka Yawanawá depicts the Amazon rainforest spirit of the water - Yuxi Yuve. The water spirit connects all the water in the Amazon and all the living things. The water originates from her hair and the spiritual painting depicts Yuxi Yuve with the waters of the Amazon flowing down her back. Sacred vines and butterflies spread across the blue sky.

"The painting depicts the Spirit of Water who lives in the depths of the great rivers of the Rainforest. Yuxi Yuve is a beautiful woman with long flowing hair, down which water cascades, forging a link connecting the Spirit with all the rivers and everything that is supported in and by the water. She is the Lady of the Waters and is a powerful spirit that looks after all the living things, plants, animals and fish that inhabit the river. She appears in visions to the Yawanawá when they have a ceremony that invokes her force in order to teach them about the spiritual forces that live in the water. She connects the world of the river to the tribe showing its importance to their life as part of nature." Nixiwaka Yawanawá
