Original Painting by John Dyer. Rare - Spiritual rebirth. Amazon Rainforest Spirit Painting inspired by the Yawanawá Tribe.

John painted this working alongside an Amazon Indian & his work featuring the Amazon spirits is a world first. The Jaguar depicts the huge power of Vana who is the spirit that the tribe experience when reborn as a Shaman. Tropical plants, birds & butterflies feature throughout the painting. Featured in the new book about John Dyer & retrospective exhibition.

"The figure at the centre of my painting symbolises not only the spirit Vana but the Yawanawá themselves. The sacred plants feature in the painting alongside one of the most powerful animals in the rainforest, the Jaguar. The Jaguar symbolises power. The humming bird and Amazon butterflies create a biodiverse image which when combined with the amazing plant forms you find in the Amazon and at the Eden Project creates a feeling of shared energy and vitality. The Yawanawá tribe are the custodians of their piece of the Amazon and their energy and life is a natural part of the ecosystem. We all need to respect the careful balance of the rainforest and I hope through these paintings our thoughts and actions will be reborn." John Dyer
