MAYA KENE

Maya Kene is one of the most famous energetic representation of the sacred medicine of Ayahuasca. Is it said that shamans are used to see these patterns during their rituals of Ayahuasca (powerful visionary brew). The invasion of the conquistadores was a big loss for all native cultures but hopefully natives from Amazonia like shipibos conibos found a way to keep their cultural identity and spiritual  connexions with the help of the drawings embroidered on their cloths and with the transmissions of their medicine songs through rituals of Ayahuasca. Songs and drawings  seem intimately connected as if it was just different manifestations of the same energy, the sacred medicine of plants.

 

THE KENE

Kene designates in shipibo the drawing. These drawings are energetic depictions of shipibo medicine under the microscope of Ayahuasca. There is as much kene as there are medicinal plants in the Amazon. From an early age, shipibo women drink or use special vision plants that teach them how to embroider these energetic patterns.

 

Fair Trade

This cloth is hand made and has been embroidered by shipibo women of Santa Rosa de Dinamarca near Pucallpa in Peru. We bought this cloth at a fair price in order to help financially shipibo people as we try to sell it at an affordable price to spread their beautiful artwork all over the world.

Traditional shipibo conibo design (hand made) embroidered on Tella Negra.
