El Encanto de las Piedras – Enchanted Stones
In ancient times shamans and fortune tellers wore necklaces of precious stones, and the kings and priests of ancient Persia and Babylonia believed in their divinity.
The magnificent bejewelled sachamama (Mother of the forest) represents the mineral origin of life on Earth. At the top left a sumiruna holds a lustrous encanto (magical stone) which radiates incandescent light for healing deadly diseases.
To the right is a lobo marino (sea lion), a yangunturo (giant armadillo), a bufeo colorado (pink dolphin), a Scarlet Macaw, and an anguilamama (electric eel). These animals carry stones inside their stomachs for digestion.
