Handmade with care and precision, this decorative tapestry features the iconic Shipibo pattern that is deeply rooted in the tribe's shamanistic rituals and visionary arts. The intricate labyrinthine geometric designs on this tapestry reflect the culture and cosmology of the Shipibo people, with elements such as the square, rhombus, octagon, and cross representing the Southern Cross constellation that dominates the night sky and divides the cosmos into four quadrants.

Other symbols featured in the designs include the Cosmic Serpent, the Anaconda, and various plant forms, notably the caapi vine used in the preparation of the sacramental drug Ayahuasca. Traditionally drawn with natural huito berry pigments on hand-woven cotton fabrics worn as wrap-around skirts, this tapestry is a modern take on a centuries-old art form. The fabric is either natural or dyed with a red-brown dye made from mahogany bark, and the hand-drawn designs are supplemented with patterns embroidered with bright-colored commercial yarns, resulting in a stunning piece of wall art.
