Ayahuasca Visions | Huarmi Taquina (Icaro de la Mujer) by Pablo Amaringo

Huarmi Taquina | (Icaro de la Mujer) by Pablo Amaringo

Huarmi Taquina by Pablo AmaringoHuarmi taquina is the icaro for drawing in feminine creative energy into an ayahuasca ceremony. It is a very powerful icaro which connects us to Mother Earth, the Pachamama: the principle that brings new life to the world.

The lianas and flowers to the right show how nature delights us with her beauty. The beautiful women and sirenas seen below near the waters represent divine union and beauty. The horse symbolises the burden that people carry in their lives, but despite the suffering we persevere, and give birth to new life and nurture our children.

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.
