Gallery 1 - Chants for Life and Fertility

The rainbow and the flower are symbols of fertility in Kuna culture. Turtles represent long life, fertility, and eroticism and are considered to be the most beautiful women who live in the 4th level of Mother Earth. The deer and the dolphin are animals that bring babies, just as the stork does in western culture.
