10 Stunning Works Of Art Inspired By Ayahuasca
Ayahuasca is a brew prepared by using the bark and leaves of two separate trees found in the Amazon jungle. The Shamans in the Amazon have been preparing this brew for over 3,000 years now and it is amazing that they managed to figure out the only naturally occurring oral form of taking serotonin such a long time ago. The ayahuasca experience is supposed to be wildly transformative, and thousands of people around the world make their way into the Amazon jungle each year to get a taste of this. Many artists have created stunning works after being inspired by the holy brew, and here are 10 of the best pieces featured in this list.
