Peruvian tribal tapestries showcase profound spiritual art
Jun '13
Shipibo textile art is inspired by ayahuasca visions and Shipibo cosmology. These Peruvian tribal tapestries are vibrant examples of profound spiritual art. The hand embroidered textile designs are visual representations of sacred songs (icaros) inspired from the ceremonial use of ayahuasca.

If one were to project an icaro onto a two-dimensional surface, the textiles are what the songs look like. Those tuned into these visual songs can read the patterns like sheet music. Mesmerizing?

Shipibo art makes an authentic, meaningful, and one-of-a-kind gift for you and your friends. Visit our website (below) for a visual gallery of Shipibo art and more information about our charity work.


Shipibo art work is profound in part because of the medicine (ayahuasca) that inspires it. This medicine heals the body, the mind, and the soul and gives profound visions and insights into one's life. Ayahuasca informs us on how to create peaceful, vibrant, and sustainable communities. Ayahuasca ceremonies are becoming a global phenomenon and a spark for conscious evolution of the planet.
