John Dyer Painting. Yawanawá Tribal Ayahuasca Ceremony, Amazon Rainforest

"This painting is of the ayahuasca ceremony I experienced with the Yawanawá tribe. A fire burns outside the 'shuhu' house. The shaman prepares ayahuasca which allows the tribe to visit the spirits. Members of the tribe line up to take ayahuasca and then sit quietly whilst other members of the tribe sing tribal songs. The evening is long-lasting until 3 am with lots of dancing, music and singing." John Dyer.
