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