Description:


The exhibition Orinoco: Indians of the Amazon Rainforest tells of the sustainable lifestyle of twelve ethnic groups that have lived for centuries along the River Orinoco in southern Venezuela.
The exhibition includes a very wide range of objects (around 700) from ritual items – masks, decorations made from feathers, shaman's tools, sacred sticks and weapons – to a rich selection of jewellery: bracelets, necklaces and earrings. There is also a wide array of pipes, flutes, rattles and other instruments; objects from everyday life – canoes, paddles, dishes and textiles; and a fine assortment of unique, hand-woven baskets. All these objects clearly express the complex relationship between their users and nature: everything that originates from the rainforest must return to it. 
The exhibition indirectly brings into sharp relief the question of whether small peoples can today still preserve their way of life and their living environment considering the devastation taking place in the tropical rainforest delicate ecosystem, which is jeopardising the global ecological equilibrium. The preservation of rainforests is imperative to the survival of both the Amazonian Indian cultures and the planet as a whole.
