Shinan Shipibo Visionary Art Oracle Deck & Book
$80.00 - $55.00
Shinan is the Shipibo word for thought, vision, or third eye and seemed a fitting word to capture the imaginal, inspirational, and healing energy of the artwork featured by Shinan Visionary Arts Oracle Deck. This incredible deck is part mystic tool, part ethnobotanical flash card. The book that accompanies the deck is a wonderfully supportive teaching piece and makes a great gift for self or other.
This is an incredible way to learn more about the weavings. The bilingual (spanish & english) oracle card deck comes with its own guidebook, packaged in a hardcover box set. However we also have an additional more in depth book (paperback, in English), The Shinan Cosmology of the Shipibo Tribe, written by Kent Osborn in collaboration with various Shipibo Maestras & Maestros, that offers more information and provides incredible study material. This book covers medicinal plants, mythology, history, anthropology and more about the Shipibo people of the Peruvian Amazon. Option to purchase just the oracle deck with its guidebook or to add the paperback book.
What is the prayer behind the “Kené” (Shipibo-Conibo) Art?
Kené art is the design of lines systems and geometric patterns made by indigenous women of the Shipibo-Conibo tribe from the Ucayali región – Peru. The Kené have a deep symbolic significance as they represent the worldview of their people, as well as energy pathways, the Milky Way, the geography of the forest, the animals, the plants, and the design of the Universe. Kené are the healing visions that come when one consumes mother plants for therapeutic purposes. The Kené, or icaros, are sung, woven, & guarded in the ancestral timeline of the Shipibo People. They also represent knowledge, culture, history and aesthetics of the Shipibo people, revealing their origin and the close links between the community and their territory.
