The Evolution of the painting 'Chacruna Versucum (Canción de la Chacruna)' - by Pablo Amaringo

  1. 1. CHACRUNA VERSUCUM ‐ Canción de la Chacruna  BY PABLO AMARINGO  The Story of a painting   Two versions of this painting are presented in the book The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo. We originally had Chacruna Versucum professionally photographed in April 2007. The following year Pablo showed us a revised version of this work. This was an exception as he had painted over the  original canvas, and  something  that he does not usually do. Pablo  commented that on reflection he  regretted repainting the canvas,  and this is one of the reasons we  felt it important to include both  versions. We talked with him to  understand his thinking and de‐ velopment between the two  paintings.     Versucum is a Latin word mean‐ ing “verse,” or “canto.” (Note  that both versions are dated 2003  on the paintings.)                              Chacruna Versucum 2003 Version  (Summary Narrative)  The five dryads sing gently to heal through the circle of chacruna leaves; they transmit love and heal‐ing energy. These fairies accompany the plants of the rainforest. They represent the five outer senses, and the many inner faculties which are derived from them: intelligence, consideration, knowledge, discernment, spiritual perception and wisdom. In the central circle the celestial aspects of chacruna are represented by the circle of leaves while the ayahuasca vine represents the Earth.      
  2. 2. Pablo said “After I had painted the  earlier version, I realized that cha‐ cruna has many other attributes and  I wanted to emphasise its celestial  aspects. This is the reason why I  have painted this second”  Chacruna Versucum  2007 Version (Summary Narrative)   This is the second version of the painting which was painted on top of the first. In the centre Pablo added the triangle of life to represent body, soul and spirit, and the triangular geometry of the human body. The triangle has an eye on each corner to symbolise intelligence, wisdom and the merging of wisdom with ignorance. Our inner depths are reflected through our eyes.  Pablo adds the golden horses around the circle to represent the energy from working with aya‐huasca and also elaborates on how the yacurunas kidnap the man fishing from his canoe in the cocha.      To view all of the beautiful paintings featured in the book ‘The Ayahuasca Visions  of Pablo Amaringo’, visit the website www.ayahuascavisions.com
