The Shipibo tribe, one of Peru's most ancient ethnic peoples, maintains a strong tribal identity, ancient shamanic traditions and an enduring sense of community and collective wisdom. Likewise, Shipibo artisans share a common artistic inspiration that allows them to collaborate on large pieces, working interchangeably to develop cohesive arts and ceramics that many think have been hand painted by a single artist.
