Portal into the Root of the Soul
The Shuar Earth Goddess Nunqui appears as human in this oil painting.
She is holding a gourd bowl filled with Chicha, the milk of the Amazon. The bowl represents her own body.
Her hair, like vines connected to the earth.
Nunqui reminds us that we are an integral part of nature.
This painting is featured on the cover of the September 2014 issue of the Seattle Edition of Natural Awakenings magazine.
If you live in the greater Seattle area, you can find a free copy of the magazine in many area businesses and health food stores.
