El Dueno de Huairuro by Lastenia Canayo

50.00

Lastenia Canayo is a Shipibo visionary artist like no other I’ve ever come across. An extraordinary talented woman who paints, sculpts, and as you can see here, also weaves and embroiders. She brings her visions of the spirits of plants to life through her art. This one, El Dueno del Huairoro, refers to the sacred Huayruro plant; a plant which is native to Peru, and has been an important part of Peruvian culture for centuries. The red and black seeds that it produces are said to bring good fortune and abundance, while warding off negative energy.
