Nixiwaka Yawanawá Painting. Nawê. Amazon Rainforest Spirits

Painted by Amazon Indian Nixiwaka Yawanawá. This unique painting explores the tribal culture of the Yawanawá people of the Brazillian Amazon & shows the snuff taking ceremony. During the ceremony Nixiwaka had a vision of a jaguar appearing and merging with a boa constrictor which then exploded with energy to form a spiritual shaman. A remarkable insight into tribal culture and a new genre of art.

"These paintings show the combining of the powerful Boa Constrictor and Jaguar. The animals are respected by the Yawanawá for their power and danger. Their combination is undertaken by two Shamans in a sacred ritual. This connection of the Shaman with nature and the Spiritual Universe evokes all the spirits of the forest and the animals, represented by the vision of joining these two powerful animals together. The ritual combines Uni (Ayahuasca) with Nawê made from the medicinal plant Tsunu. It is a sacred ritual which makes a connection through the Shaman, that creates a healing and protecting process for the tribe, the Rainforest, the Spiritual World that exists beyond our material world." Nixiwaka Yawanawá
