So according to paintings we meet the main clauses(head teachers), of Pachamama (the " earth mother ") in the divinities of the water and the forest; the represented bestiary is symbolic and also reflects the universe of the mountain range, the Amazonia, the Andes.

Dreams, legends, animism, traditions and strong symbols: the paint very colored with this artist rapidly expanding already celebrated in Latin America draw its depth at the source of the authentic roots, at the beginning of the world, when the man and the nature made only one, when the gods reigned with benevolence over the creation.
