    I began to hear references to Chullachaqui, Yacumama, Runamula. The people spoke of these unseen forces in common daily life, legends and myths of the jungle, which while perhaps (arguably) not “existing” in the material physical realm existed in non-material spiritual realms.

  • Jheferson

    As a self-taught artist, Jheferson’s neo-Amazonian visionary painting style was a result of the visions induced by master plants. On his canvas, he paints the spiritual and invisible worlds that he perceives.  His works transcend the veil that separates us from the spiritual realm and invites us to explore this other world of shamanic visions.
