Description

Need a special card? This is a 4" x 6" folded blank card featuring an original colored pencil illustration on the front of a dream-like vision, based on Amazonian Shipibo patterns in the background.

The image is printed on thick, matte cardstock and comes with a brightly coloured envelope of your choice. Watermark will NOT appear on final product.

** SET OF 6 CARDS **
This card is also available in a pack of 6 cards and envelopes -- available in a separate listing. To help reduce plastic waste, the cards will be packaged in a folder handmade from recycled magazine pages.


"" DESCRIPTION **

The hummingbird is seen as a symbol of resurrection, beauty and magic. Set against a mandala or wheel design of bursting colours, a bird-creature dressed in white has her feet immersed in a pool of water (a symbol for the subconscious), while geometric lines of energy seem to emanate from its depths.

What if we could paint music?


From Data Is Nature:

"The intricate linear geometric and symmetrical artworks of the Shipibo Indians, a large tribe of the Peruvian Amazon, act as visual music maps – scores notating the chants and songs (Icaros) associated with Ayahuasca healing ceremonies. [..]

According to Howard G. Charing, in his article on the visual music of the tribe, ‘the Shipibo can listen to a song or chant by looking at the designs – and inversely, paint a pattern by listening to a song or music’. He goes on to mention how the designs are mapped using specific songs during the creation of the artefacts – in this sense the periodicity and repetitions in the songs appear to act as a generative grammar system."
