Arlindo Daureano Estevão (Daso), 6.12.91.

Drawn by the husband of Marlene Lopes Mateus, who lives in the village of Cana Recreio, Purus River, Brazil, this work represents the cosmos as perceived in the artist's ayahuasca visions. Different worlds are represented as houses with doors to be entered and paths linking the different contained spaces (houses, worlds, bodies). Arlindo called this design nawan kene pua, stranger's design, with crossed paths. The spots represent stars.
