Inspired by Jepira
Jepira is the place where the dead live! We took inspiration from the Wayuu indigenous peoples' beliefs about the afterlife to create this tapestry. According to the oral traditions of the indigenous peoples, the Wayuu die twice. Jepira is the place where the dead souls stay until they reach the Milky Way. There, the souls can transform themselves into rain and thereby return to the Guajira Desert. However, the deceased can also transform into Wanülü, an evil spirit.
