This painting represents the context of a tribal medicinal plant ceremony in the Amazonial rainforest.
Once the ceremony reaches the stability of mariación (trance state) of the medicinal plants, the shaman brings to vision a healing environment through his Ikaros (ceremonial songs). The healing environment consists of multicolored temples, various plants, flowers and insects that bring emotional tranquility and healing to the participants. The temple at the top represents the divine sphere whee light beings reside, while the temple at the bottom of the image represents the brujo path that is always present and tempting to the participants. It is a personal choice which path one wants to follow.
