ECUADOR COLLECTION – UPPER WORLD 90 SCARF PINK
It was during a trip to Ecuador that Morgane Vandevelde discovered the beauty of the Andes mountains. While a five day trek heading to the top of Quilotoa’s volcano, she was lucky enough to learn more about the Ecuadorian’s wildlife. Therefore, amazed by this beauty and scarred for life by this experience, Morgane decided to pay tribute to this magnificent ascent.
As a result, the three patterns of the collection are inspired by an Inca belief : our world is divided by three realms. The divine Upper World silk scarf is representing the world above, the realm of the milky way.
THREE WORLDS LIVING TOGETHER
- The underworld, beneath us, home of the Snake.
- The middle world, the land we walk, home of the Puma.
- The upper world, where Heavens await us, home of the Condor.
Each representing a state of consciousness, a part of the human body. Each world with its own spirit animal. Each world its own scarf, telling its story. Which animal will you be?
THE SNAKE – The Underworld
As mentioned above, the snake represents the underworld.
To start with, it is believed that when you die, rather than going to hell, you begin a new life. Conversely the occidental believes, the snake is a symbol of wisdom and knowledge, it embodies rebirth by its molting.
Also, the snake equals the subconscious level and is an image for hypnosis, medicine, and healing, due to its venom. It represents the state of intuition and equals the spine in the human body.
