Shipibo traditional - ceremonial skirt73 cm x 83 cmfabric color: whiteembroidered with colored and white threads73 cm long x 83 wide (the waist is adjustable to the extent you want as a wraparound skirt) kene design embroidery sacred art shipibo-konibo tribefrom the generative song & sound pattern matrixes of the shipibo indians:the intricate linear geometric and symmetrical artworks of the shepibo indians, a large tribe of the peruvian amazon, act as visual music maps scores notating the chants and songs (icaros) associated with ayahasca healing ceremonies. The textiles and embroidery, all crafted by women, contain recursive and self-reflective motifs, including geometric configurations common to those generated computationally by iterative functions.
A characteristic recurring visual system found in the textiles are bilaterally generated cellular patterns containing space-filling curves. The kene design is an art from native people of the peruvian rainforest.
It represents the energy in our world, and it's inspired by the ancestral and natural medicine called ayahuasca, a sacred healing plant.
