¡En el corazón de la selva tropicale! -“La magia de la Amazonia Las aventuras de Meromi, una niña Yanomami”

ilustración de “La magia de la Amazonia” – Las aventuras de Meromi, una niña Yanomami

Un regalo de Navidad este año, leemos partes de este cuento en voz alta durante varias noches. Nuestro hijo de 8 años estaba ansioso por escuchar lo que vendría. Este tema era nuevo para él y le fascinaba conocer los rituales de los chamanes, tradiciones con plantas y detalles de la vida Yanomami en la Amazonía. Adoraba las plantas y los animales que hablaban y se regocijaba con los nombres de todos los personajes (le encantaba rodar los nombres en su boca mucho después de que se contara la historia).

 La historia está respaldada por hermosas e intrigantes ilustraciones y el diseño gráfico muy original del libro. ¡Es un cuento que debe estar en manos de más de nosotros, jóvenes y mayores!

About Barbara Crane Navarro - Rainforest Art Project

I'm a French artist living near Paris. From 1968 to 1973 I studied at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island, then at the San Francisco Art Institute in San Francisco, California, for my BFA. My work for many decades has been informed and inspired by time spent with indigenous communities. Various study trips devoted to the exploration of techniques and natural pigments took me originally to the Dogon of Mali, West Africa, and subsequently to Yanomami communities in Venezuela and Brazil. Over many years, during the winters, I studied the techniques of traditional Bogolan painting. Hand woven fabric is dyed with boiled bark from the Wolo tree or crushed leaves from other trees, then painted with mud from the Niger river which oxidizes in contact with the dye. Through the Dogon and the Yanomami, my interest in the multiplicity of techniques and supports for aesthetic expression influenced my artistic practice. The voyages to the Amazon Rainforest have informed several series of paintings created while living among the Yanomami. The support used is roughly woven canvas prepared with acrylic medium then textured with a mixture of sand from the river bank and lava. This supple canvas is then rolled and transported on expeditions into the forest. They are then painted using a mixture of acrylic colors and Achiote and Genipap, the vegetal pigments used by the Yanomami for their ritual body paintings and on practical and shamanic implements. My concern for the ongoing devastation of the Amazon Rainforest has inspired my films and installation projects. Since 2005, I've created a perfomance and film project - Fire Sculpture - to bring urgent attention to Rainforest issues. To protest against the continuing destruction, I've publicly set fire to my totemic sculptures. These burning sculptures symbolize the degradation of nature and the annihilation of indigenous cultures that depend on the forest for their survival.
