Description

Eà Dè or “The Path Home”, a piece representing the tribe’s ancestral dwelling.

The small triangles on the first row represent or The Hut. The bigger triangles represent the Colombian Andes. Dé, the middle section of the piece, that joins the two sections, represents the path home.

Blue, pācuārā, symbolises water, vitality, life. Black, chipār, represents feminine wisdom and spiritual protection. Black is a particularly important color to the community as they believe it protects their art and themselves.

Eà Dè is a beautiful and heartfelt work of art that pays homage to the living and delicate world that surrounds us and to which we are connected.
