Llullo Machaco by Pablo Amaringo – Fine Art Archival Reproductions

Llullo Machaco  Serpiente Verde

Llullo means green, tender and young in Quechua. In the Peruvian selva people call babies llullos. The idea expressed in this picture is that however our life unfolds and whatever our destiny might be, we are all born in absolute perfection. We are innocent when we come into the world and have no guile or deceits.

The Llullo Machaco symbolises this purity and its verdant colour is like the virgin forest; uncultivated and uncontaminated. The serpent has long been regarded as the evil that tempted Adam and Eve into eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge and religions have used these guilty feelings to manipulate and control us, and no good has come of it. The birds are messengers from the celestial temples and palaces seen above.

The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo


Illustrating the evolution of his intricate and colorful art, this book contains 48 full-color reproductions of Amaringo’s latest works with detailed explorations of the rich Amazonian mythology underlying each painting. Through their longstanding relationship with Amaringo, coauthors Charing and Cloudsley are able to share the personal stories behind his visions and experiences with Amazonian people and folklore, capturing Amaringo’s powerful ecological and spiritual message through his art and words.

With contributions by Graham Hancock, Jeremy Narby, Robert Venosa, Dennis McKenna, Stephan Beyer, and Jan Kounen, this book brings the ayahuasca experience to life as we travel on Amaringo’s visionary brush and palette.

ebook – Birds and Animals in Mishana Nature Reserve, Amazon Rainforest – Peru

Ebook – Based on a field expedition by Zoologist Frank Lambert in January 2006

Mishana Retreat Centre – Amazon Rainforest, Peru
We have 57 Hectares (140 acres) of land with a lodge in the Allpahuayo Mishana Nature reserve. Our lodge is located directly on the river which is part of a 58,070 hectare nature reserve.

Due to a combination of geological factors and diverse soil types, the reserve supports a unique community of plant and animal species. It is the ‘jewel’ in the crown for bird-watchers and contains dozens of species which are unique to this area. The Reserve contains one of the highest biodiversities known in the Amazon basin. The Lodge is located directly on the Rio Nanay which is a tributary of the Amazon River.

Our lodge is situated in-between two bends of the river giving an amazing panoramic view. We have our own boat so trips can be made to some interesting, and extraordinarily beautiful places along the river. The lodge is a 2 hour river journey from Iquitos by power boat.
