Ayahuasca Visions | Patiquina Samai by Pablo Amaringo


Patiquina Samai (The breath of the Patiquinas) by Pablo Amaringo

 

Patiquina Samai by Pablo AmaringoThe patiquina (Dieffenbachia sp) is widely used in Peru in banos florales (floral baths) for counteracting brujeria and attracting positive energy. The four varieties of patiquina seen here are verde, blanco, negro and pintado (green, white, black and mottled), each with its own spirit or guardian which you can see beside each of the plants.

The Patiquina verde in the top right for example, is used to represent the lungs; the essence of a person’s being. The different shades of green, extending from the edge of the leaf to its centre indicates here that the state of the lungs is good.

 

This painting  is featured in the book ‘The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo‘  published by Inner Traditions 2011. Authors Howard G Charing and Peter Cloudsley.
