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.

When a shaman transforms himself into kinetic energy and merges with the universe, he can see the past, present and future as if it were all one eternal moment.Above are two celestial guardians bearing swords. These guardians are known as tronos (thrones). They bestow the powers of transformation on the shaman who must master his fear. The soaring of the eagle represents the potential that we humans have to ascend to personal mastery and wisdom..

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 – Jigsaw Puzzle


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
Pablo Amaringo’s beautiful art, visit www.ayahuascavisions.com.

Templo Sacrosanto

This is the sacrosanct temple of the Pleiades. Pablo said, ‘if I had enough money I would like to build a temple like this by a lake. I would make a port to arrive at and a ramp to enter at the centre. How people would love to visit a place like that! I have seen it already in my vision and it is just like this’.

The Evolution of the painting ‘Chacruna Versucum (Canción de la Chacruna)’ – by Pablo Amaringo


The Evolution of the painting ‘Chacruna Versucum’ (Canción de la Chacruna) by Pablo Amaringo

Two versions of this painting are presented in the book ‘The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo’. We originally had Chacruna Versucum professionally photographed in April 2007. The following year Pablo showed us a revised version of this work. This was an exception as he had painted over the original canvas (something that he did not usually do). Pablo commented that on reflection he regretted repainting the canvas, and this is one of the reasons we felt it important to include both versions. We talked with him to understand his thinking and development between the two paintings. Versucum is a Latin word meaning “verse,” or “canto.” (Note that both versions are dated 2003 on the paintings.)

Chacruna Versucum (2003) by Pablo AmaringoChacruna Versucum 2003 Version (Summary Narrative)

The five dryads sing gently to heal through the circle of chacruna leaves; they transmit love and healing energy. These fairies accompany the plants of the rainforest. They represent the five outer senses, and the many inner faculties which are derived from them: intelligence, consideration, knowledge, discernment, spiritual perception and wisdom. In the central circle the celestial aspects of chacruna are represented by the circle of leaves while the ayahuasca vine represents the Earth.

 

Chacruna Versucum 2007 Version (Summary Narrative)

Chacruna Versucum 2007 version by Pablo AmaringoThis is the second version of the painting which was painted on top of the first. In the centre Pablo added the triangle of life to represent body, soul and spirit, and the triangular geometry of the human body. The triangle has an eye on each corner to symbolise intelligence, wisdom and the merging of wisdom with ignorance. Our inner depths are reflected through our eyes. Pablo adds the golden horses around the circle to represent the energy from working with ayahuasca and also elaborates on how the yacurunas kidnap the man fishing from his canoe in the cocha.

Pablo said “After I had painted the earlier version, I realized that chacruna has many other attributes and I wanted to emphasise its celestial aspects. This is the reason why I have painted this second”

NoteAyahuasca is a sacred medicine of the indigenous people living in the Upper Amazon area of South America. Ayahuasca is a name derived from two Quechua words: aya means “spirit, ancestor, deceased person,” and huasca means “vine” or “rope.” Hence it is known as “vine of the dead” or “vine of the soul.” It is important to note that the term ayahuasca refers to both the vine itself (Banisteriopsis caapi), and the psychoactive brew made from combining the vine with at least one other ingredient, typically the leaves of the chacruna plant (Psychotria viridis). The vine is an inhibitor that contains harmala alkaloids, and the leaf contains vision-inducing alkaloids (DMT). Chacruna (Psychotria viridis) leaves are boiled with the ayahuasca vine to produce the ayahuasca brew.
