The muses of time can be seen in the upper sphere and the accompanying muses of space in the lower sphere. The two divinities in yellow are virtudes (virtues), they represent elevated qualities of love, compassion and kindness.
The muses in the lower sphere watch over the entire biosphere from the ozone layer down to the depths of the ocean. Time and space appears united to us, and we are a part of them, but an alternate time and space also exists beyond our everyday experience which we can perceive through the eye of ayahuasca.

Pablo Amaringo Member Since November 2010 Artist StatementPablo Amaringo
Recognized as one of the world’s great visionary artists, Pablo Amaringo was renowned for his intricate, colorful paintings inspired by his shamanic visions. A master communicator of the ayahuasca experience--where snakes, jaguars, subterranean beings, celestial palaces, aliens, and spacecraft all converge--Amaringo’s art presents a doorway to the transcendent worlds of ayahuasca intended for contemplation, meditation, and inspiration.
Pablo Amaringo (1938-2009) trained as a curandero in the Amazon, healing himself and others from the age of ten, but retired in 1977 to become a full-time painter and art teacher at his Usko-Ayar school in Pucullpa, Peru. The author of Ayahuasca Visions: The Religious Iconography of a Peruvian Shaman, his art has been displayed throughout the world.
The new book; The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo, published in April 2011 by Inner Traditions features 48 never before published paintings, by Howard G. Charing and Peter Cloudsley.
