Madre Ayahuasca

24kt gold water gilt/oil on wood 25"X20"

 Ayahuasca is an ancient traditional medicine that induces visions and can lead one to deep insights and great personal revelations. Once, during an ayahuasca ceremony, a native came to me in a vision and told me to use my abilities as an artist to show 'my people' (Americans) the beauty of the Amazon, and also make them aware of its ongoing destruction.
