Joan Halifax writes of this picture: "A female machi (shaman) has ascended her rewe or notched pole.  The pole has steps, and the machi climbs to the seventh level to complete her skyward journey.  She plays a frame drum that assists her in her climb up the World Tree.  In the Mapuche region of Chile, the hallucinogens Anadenathera, Datura, and Brugmancia were used during shamanic seances."
