Painting: Oil on Canvas.
I made this painting as part of The Contemporary Indigenous Collection, where I interviewed people I met on my travels around South America to uncover it's true face; its influences and global diversity. I asked them if the native indigenous culture was present in their lives and how.

Mapuche means “people of the earth”. Stories of dance and ceremonies, spirituality and working life are delicately captured on their weaves.
Mapuche Dance is a ritual of worship rendered to the divinity and a healing ceremony as well. There is a dance called the Loncomeo that imitates the movements of animals around the fire. The shamanness of the Mapuches is fundamental in these ritual dances, as she is the sole intermediary between mortals and the spirit world.
Yoruba culture has a textile history dating back as far as the 1400s. Yoruba have
been manufacturing (and wearing) indigenous fabric for centuries.
