The Exquisite Geometric Art of the Shipibo: Catalogue


Shipibo Art - Unique Geometric designsAn inventory of my collection of Shipibo Artisan work. I have been collecting for many years and there are some exemplary pieces in the collection. I’ve assembled an 80 page catalogue of their beautiful work.

It is time to get these wonderful textiles and artisan work out of a trunk, and share them with the world. Many items are for sale, and a price list is included. In addition I’ve included an article about the unique geometric designs of the Shipibo people.

The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo – Encanto Rumi


This stone is forged in space and brought down to earth when summoned by the sumiruna (the highest grade of shaman) for initiating his disciples in voyaging to other galaxies. The sumirunas below are learning how to receive spiritual fire and how to withstand extreme conditions which they will experience on their lone voyages.

The eagle represents the sublime beauty of the stone, the jaguar its magnetic power and the bull its soul. Above you see the puya runas (cloud people) and the guacamayo runa: people with the head of a guacamayo and the body of a man.


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

The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo – Ayari Warmi


Ayari Huarmi by Pablo Amaringo

The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo

Ayari Warmi – The Elegant Garment of a Woman

The picture reveals the eternal mystery of the feminine. When a woman works with the spirit of ayahuasca and other plants, her radiant spiritual purity appears in the vision embellished and garlanded with beautiful flowers. Just as lakes and rivers have luxuriant foliage and blossom adorning their banks, so a woman expresses the splendour of the entire natural world. Women embody heavenly beauty, tenderness and grace, while men should develop wisdom to be of service to beauty in their lives. When a woman learns to sing icaros, they resemble tuneful bird song, flowing water or the sound of wind blowing through the trees.

Ayari Warmi  is featured in the book ‘The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo’  published by Inner Traditions 2011.

Authors Howard G Charing and Peter Cloudsley.

The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo – Ondas de la Ayahuasca


The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo

Ondas de la Ayahuasca – Waves of Ayahuasca

At the top of the picture the sun radiates brilliant waves. As the source of all life on earth, the sun represents the blessings of the divine celestial pattern, the ultimate source of all life in the universe which we call God.

Ayahuasca is one of the most remarkable gifts from the plant realm as it contains chemicals identical to the neurotransmitters found in the human brain. When you drink ayahuasca the sensory neurons which transmit messages inside the brain are enhanced so that a person can receive wisdom and knowledge. The shamans in the ceremony are curing a man suffering from mental illness caused by an imbalance in his pituitary gland and hypothalamus.

Pablo Amaringo – Interview and Foreword


Foreword by Pablo Amaringo, to the book ‘Plant Spirit Shamanism’.

Pablo Amaringo - collage of Ayahuasca Visionary Paintings

Pablo Amaringo is one of the world’s great visionary artists. He is renowned for his highly complex, colourful and intricate paintings inspired by his visions from when he was an Ayahuasca shaman. He trained as a curandero or healer in the Amazon, healing himself and others from the age of ten, but gave this up in 1977 to become a full-time painter and art teacher at the Usko-Ayar school of Amazonian art which he founded. His book, Ayahuasca Visions: The Religious Iconography of a Peruvian Shaman, co-authored with Luis Eduardo Luna, brought his work and the rich mythology of the Amazon to a wide public in the West.

Also included; an interview with Pablo Amaringo with Howard G Charing & Peter Cloudsley (Pucallpa, Peru). This interview first published in Sacred Hoop Issue 53, 2006.
