Caspi Maman (Mother of the Trees) by Pablo Amaringo

Caspi Maman – Mother of the Trees.
When you go into the selva, you will see the immense Caspi Maman looking at you. She has created this magnificent green temple in which you find yourself and she will show you that the selva consists of a multitude of levels starting underground, going through the forest floor, and up to the tree canopy. On the left of the picture you can see a powerful sumiruna and palero smoking a cachimbo. His ornate crown is formed by two blue and yellow Macaws who watch over the shaman when he drinks ayahuasca.

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.
