Painting the traditional design

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

Scanned from a 6x6 transparency from the year 1970 I quote Howard G. Charing :
The intricate Shipibo designs have their origin in the non-manifest and ineffable world in the spirit of the Rainforest and all who live there. The designs are a representation of the Cosmic Serpent, the Anaconda, the great Mother, creator of the universe called Ronin Kene. For the Shipibo the skin of Ronin Kene has a radiating, electrifying vibration of light, colour, sound, movement and is the embodiment of all possible patterns and designs past, present, and future. _ _The smaller flowing patterns within the geometric forms are the radiating power of the Cosmic Serpent which turns this way and that, betwixt and between constantly creating the universe as it moves. The circles are often a direct representation of the Cosmic Anaconda, and within the circle itself is the central point of creation.

Hier ist ein noch ein interessanter Artikel über Shipibos: Shipibos, people of the river - The Shipibo are the only native group of the Amazon that have, after the conquest, ... residents that one of their own was weaving alliances with the other world.

Eva, tus fotos de Perú son todo un rescate de costumbres y tradiciones, me gustan. Saludos de la Ciudad de México.

No fue solo un rescate de costumbre y tradiciones, porque espero que lo sigan haciendo, pero sí fue un rescate de viejas transparencias. Gracias Ludwig28
