Lastenia Canayo Painting - El Mono Maquisapa


These magical works of art were painted by Peruvian artist Lastenia Canayo, a contemporary artist and cultural ambassador from the Shipibo-Konibo indigenous community located on the banks of the Ucaylali River in the central Peruvian Amazon. Her name in her native language is "Pecon Quena," which translates to "the one who calls the colors." Her art represents the protective spirit within plants and animals that safeguard the rainforest, maintaining the sacred connection between humans and nature. Ayahuasca plays a pivotal role in her culture, serving as a powerful means of healing. This sacred wisdom manifests as vivid visions, and is translated into colorful and vibrant paintings.
