Peruvian Amazonian Shipibo Ikaro Ayahuasca wall-hanging/ fabric / tablecloth Hand-painted on cotton with dye made from the Ayahuasca root, this fabric will look striking in any home. You can use it as it is - as a throw, tablecloth or bed cover. Alternatively you can sew a hem along the top and then run a pole through it, making a stunning wall hanging. The fabric is earth brown in colour and the dye is black.
The designs are typical "Ikaro" patterns used by the Shipibo tribe in the Amazon Jungle. They represent the journey taken while under the influence of the Ayahuasca root. The central circle shows two snakes and the Ayahuasca vine.
Ayahuasca is an Amazonian plant concoction that has been used for centuries, possibly millennia, by native Indian and shamans across the upper Amazon in northern Peru. Ayahuasca was, and still is, used by the shamans of the Amazon region for healing and divinatory purposes.
The Shipibo culture, originating along the Ucayali River in the Peruvian Upper Amazon, is well known for shamanism and plant medicine. The use of Shipibo imagery related to ayahuasca is widespread and the well-recognized Shipibo patterns of ikaro are synonymous with ayahuasca and its practice throughout Peru.
The fabric measures 153 cm (vertical) x 148 cm (horizontal) (60 x 58 inches)
