The central emblem in the mandala of thispiece contains the pink 'Flor de Vida' (flower of life), which is then surrounded by four quadrants of the chacruna plant. The traditional designs of the maya kené in mainly blue stitching outside the central mandala represent the rivers now curving their paths through the Amazon. 

The Shipibo designs are traditionally carried out on natural un-dyed cotton (which they often grow themselves) or on cotton dyed in mahogany bark (usually three or four times) which gives the distinctive brown colour. They paint either using a pointed piece of chonta (bamboo) or an iron nail with the juice of the crushed Huito (Genipa americana) berry fruits which turns into a blue- brown-black dye once exposed to air.

Each of the designs are unique, even the very small pieces, and they cannot be commercially or mass produced. 

Handmade by Shipibo women
