The geometric designs along the bottom represent the songs that curanderos learn and sing from the Mother Ayahuasca and are a traditional element in ceremonial garments. The tree represents the growth of the wisdom gained in these experiences.

The geometric designs along the bottom represent the songs that curanderos learn and sing from the Mother Ayahuasca and are a traditional element in ceremonial garments. The tree represents the growth of wisdom gained in these experiences. While not representing any particular vision it does reflect the intense well-being that accumulates after visiting with spirit of the vine.
