John Dyer Painting. The Healing Shaman, Yawanawá Tribe, Amazon Rainforest


"My painting depicts a ceremony in which a shaman prays into a shamanic healing pot to help to heal an ill member of the tribe. The shamanic pot is shown by the negative space the snake creates in the centre of my painting. On the far side of the river, we see the shaman standing over the poorly person. Toucans call from the canopy, butterflies fly past and ants crawl on just about everything!"
