The Thinking Shaman depicts a man wearing a helmet, whose foliage represents his healing powers, like the mexican "pirule" branches used in "limpias" (cleansings) and the european, laurel, worn by the Greeks and Romans to symbolize, victory. He smokes tabacco, a common tradition amongst Indigenous shamans during visions. A "sahuemerio" (incense burner) is lit to keep away any bad spirits that could interfere with his vision and a xoloitzcuinlte, a Mexican hairless lays at the base of his feet in front of a campfire. In this painting, the xolo is used to represent change, as they were often used in funerals 500 years ago to be guides into the afterlife.
