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.

Ayahuasca Visions | Pagoda Dorada by Pablo Amaringo


Pagoda Dorada by Pablo Amaringo

Pagoda Dorada by Pablo Amaringo At the upper left of the picture is the huairamama (the Mother of the sky), who has dominion of the atmosphere. She moves like a whirlwind and creates storms; her rain fertilises the rainforest and makes the plants flourish. At the lower left is the sachamama (Mother of the forest), who manifests the vital force of the earth and preserves the rainforest. The Pagoda Dorada is an occult temple which no one sees, like the soul of a person. Inside is perfect harmony, it is the optimal place for life to function. If the distance between the Earth and Sun were any different, life on Earth would not be possible.

Ayahuasca Visions | A’tun Supay Lancha by Pablo Amaringo


A’tun Supay Lancha (Lancha Fantasma) by Pablo Amaringo

A'tun Supay Lancha by Pablo AmaringoThe shamans in front sing the icaro of the lancha fantasma and strong visionary effects soon starts to take hold on them all. Hidden places in the earth open up and spirits arise from caves to celebrate the arrival of the Great Phantom Ship with circle dances.

You can sense the exhilaration and ecstasy of the vision – dryads and nymphs work while animal spirits dance to help the plants to flourish. On the decks are warriors, sylphs, musicians, revered gurus from India, and the great teachers from ancient China. The ship here represents the huairamama (Mother of the air), or cosmic serpent: the manifestation of the cosmic vibration which creates all matter.

Ayahuasca Visions | Unicornio Dorado by Pablo Amaringo


Unicornio Dorado (The Golden Unicorn) by Pablo Amaringo

Unicornio Dorado by Pablo AmaringoHere we can see two ceremonies, one on each side of the picture. The ceremony on the left is with indigenous and mestizo people (of mixed ancestry), and on the right there are highly educated, cultivated people, scholars and priests.

The huaccras or horns, seen left and right, represent the different paths of evolution and knowledge. The huaccra on the left shows the path of the native traditions while the right one indicates the path of modern civilisation. Those that follow the path of indigenous people arrive more quickly at the sacred temple.

Pablo Amaringo | Los Loros

Pablo Amaringo : Los Loros Jigsaw PuzzleA celebration of the beauty and harmony of the Amazon’s flora and
fauna, Los Loros (The Parrots) is the work of Peruvian painter Pablo
Amaringo (1938–2009). Recognized as one of the world’s great
visionary artists, Amaringo was renowned for his intricate, colorful
paintings inspired by shamanic visions. Entirely self-taught, he
painted Amazonian landscapes with meticulous botanical precision.

Pablo Amaringo : Los Loros Jigsaw PuzzleIn 1988 Amaringo co-founded the Usko-Ayar Amazonian
School of Painting in Pucallpa, Peru, whose students, aged eight to
twenty-four, are educated free of cost. The school—dedicated to
documenting the flora, fauna, and culture of the Amazon and inspiring
people everywhere to revere and care for the living Earth—originated
the pictorial style known as neo-Amazonian art. To see more of

Ayahuasca Visions | El Encanto de las Piedras by Pablo Amaringo


El Encanto de las Piedras by Pablo Amaringo

Encanto de las Piedras by Pablo amaringo

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.

Ayahuasca Visions | Huarmi Taquina (Icaro de la Mujer) by Pablo Amaringo


Huarmi Taquina | (Icaro de la Mujer) by Pablo Amaringo

Huarmi Taquina by Pablo AmaringoHuarmi taquina is the icaro for drawing in feminine creative energy into an ayahuasca ceremony. It is a very powerful icaro which connects us to Mother Earth, the Pachamama: the principle that brings new life to the world.

The lianas and flowers to the right show how nature delights us with her beauty. The beautiful women and sirenas seen below near the waters represent divine union and beauty. The horse symbolises the burden that people carry in their lives, but despite the suffering we persevere, and give birth to new life and nurture our children.
