SHAYANA

Shayana, was a Legendary Healer the first Female Shaman.
She could communicate with Animals and Heal with Herbs.
The cat stands for intuition, the owl for wisdom. Around her
the visionary cactus Peyote, in her hand healing herbs, flowers
and a trunk of Ayahuasca. On her head grow Magic Mushrooms.
The snakes stand for the venom and the antidode and the aesculap
of intertwined snakes on her belly symbolise the DNA spiral.
