Mirna is an indigenous artist from the Shipibo community. Her indigenous tribe lives in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru. She designs and embroideries colorful and intricate manta cloth (textiles) that are an authentic piece of handmade art. The Shipibo see and hear the geometric patterns in nature and reproduce the designs featured in these unique textiles. The Shipibo believe the patterns in their manta cloth are healing on the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical level. Each design carries its own special meaning and functions as a musical score called an ‘Icaro’ that can be sung. Mirna’s one-of-a-kind art pieces feature local plants and animals from the region.
