Masters of Ayahuasca - Page 3 of 4
Ayahuasca is commonly
depicted by Shipibo artisans, who are well-known for their intricate
designs, on their pottery and colorful fabrics depicting their Ayahuasca-based
cosmology. The geometric designs used by Shipibo artisans are quite unique.
As might be expected, their pottery was initially very simple and used as
containers to preserve food. With time, pottery and designs have become more
and more complex. The sophisticated designs and geometric patterns of the
ceramics are passed from one generation of artists to another. The art pieces
are extremely soft and light weight and their technique is all done manually
without the use of pottery wheels.
