River Art - View Across Water to a Village with People in a Boat Canvas Print

Regular price $ 99.99

This 'River Art - View Across Water to a Village with People in a Boat Canvas Print' shows a village scene.

Enjoy this beautiful, impressionistic view of a river bank, huts, people and boats.

This idyllic canvas has a feeling of warmth and vitality about it that you are sure to enjoy.

You can see a clear blue sky, huts, boats and an open stretch of water.

This particular artwork is based on a scene from a village that is on the banks of the Pastaza river in Peru.

Travel without needing to leave your home :-)

The Pastaza River is a large tributary to the Maranon River in the northwestern Amazon Basin of South America. Like many rivers in this area of the world its length of 440 miles (710 km) is pretty awe-inspiring.

(To get that number in perspective consider that the distance from Great Britain’s northernmost point in Dunnet Head, Scotland, to Lizard Point, its southernmost point, is 600 miles. So the length of the Pastaza River is equivalent in length to over 2/3rds of the length of Great Britain).

One of the main crops in the area is Peruvian Cacao (cocoa) which is a considerable cash crop for the Peruvian economy.

Peru is the ninth largest cacao producer in the world (with roughly 71,175 tons a year), and is the world's largest organic cacao producer. It has been estimated that more than 50,000 Peruvians earn a living from the production and cultivation of cacao.

Close to villages such as the one pictured you would find both wild and cultivated cacao crops. Peru boasts six of the ten genetic families of cacao that exist in the world, and hence can also lay claim to a wider variety of flavor profiles for chocolate then consumers in the UK and USA may be used to.

If you look at a canvas print like this then it is a calming and idyllic scene. But what you may not realize is that boats are pretty much the only easy transportation method in the region, and so what seems calm and relaxing to us, would probably look like standing next to a taxi rank for a Peruvian!

You can see in the print that the houses are depicted on stilts, and are often open air structures. This helps to keep them dry during floods, and is also an attempt to keep snakes and other wildlife out of the homes (poisonous snake bites are still a major threat to residents along rivers like this).

No snakes in sight though in this canvas print!

This nature canvas would look beautiful on your walls, and make you feel calm and centered whenever you see it.
