Event - Amazon, exhibition
Deep in the Amazon rainforest.

The Amazon river has flowed right into the Chateau of the Dukes of Brittany! Learn about the history and current situation of the populations of the Amazon basin in this exhibition. Visitors will plunge into a unique and multi-sensory experience set in the Amazon rainforest.
Jewels, weapons, musical instruments and everyday objects illustrate the skills and arts of about fifteen different Amazonian peoples. These objects reveal a belief in the symbiosis between the world of the forest and the spirits. Through material objects we can get closer to understanding the practice of shamanism, common to all the populations of the Amazon basin.
This exhibition offers an immersive experience thanks to the visual beauty of the pieces presented but also to the soundscape which recreates the atmosphere of the Amazon rainforest.
