The intricate Shipibo designs have their origin in the non-manifest and ineffable world in the spirit of the Rainforest and all who live there. The designs are a representation of the Cosmic Serpent, the Anaconda, the Great Mother, creator of the universe called Ronin Kene. For the Shipibo, the skin of Ronin Kene has a radiating, electrifying vibration of light, color, sound, and movement and is the embodiment of all possible patterns and designs past, present, and future. The designs that the Shipibo paint are channels, or conduits, for this multi-sensorial vibrational fusion of form, light and sound.
