Portal to a Parallel World
By Charles Brewer-CarÃas
Cosmic Polymath in Australia writes a review of Ye’kuana Basketry Symbology Book:
A new book by Venezuelan Encyclopaedist and polymath Charles Brewer-Carias, called â€œYeâ€™kuana Basketry Symbology: Portal to a Parallel Worldâ€ is the latest publication in a long list of beautifully illustrated books by the author, showcasing his vast knowledge of the cultural, botanical and biological riches of his native Venezuela. The primary focus of this outstanding book is a deep and thorough investigation into the culture and cosmogony of the Yeâ€™kuana indigenous people displayed through the craftsmanship of their woven basketry.
Following last yearâ€™s exhibition â€˜Convergences / Divergencesâ€™ the Juan Carlos Maldonado Art Collection published a book with Venezuelan anthropologist and explorer, Charles Brewer-CarÃas, to document the heritage of the Yeâ€˜Kwana, an indigenous tribe in the Venezuelan Amazon, whose artifacts were displayed as central art pieces in the exhibition.
