Body Modification


Theresa Cecilia Garcia

The attractive simplicity of touching innocence is rooted in a primitive intellectual background where anger and aversion point to absurdity and impartiality is evident.

Passing through medicinal plants and wildlife that pan out the gold of the river in search of rubber trees to tap, the travelers give testimony to the ceremony
that may have shocked missionaries but was beautiful and holy to the indigenous people of the region.

Sharing Quichua legends amidst the setting that gave them birth, dancing beneath waterfalls, absorbing the energy and power, the natives cube their tongues with heavy pedimented angled projections, cutting their ties with jostling, shoving, hardships; subjecting themselves to old cultures, forgotten rituals, in the hopes of expanding their speech to genuine truth.

A completed discipline shrouds itself in secrecy and the practitioners scatter feathers of knowledge into their hands as they sink to the ground, touching mythology , beginning the day by interpreting the previous night's dreams.
